The National Capital Commission (NCC) is a federal Crown corporation created by Parliament in 1959 through the National Capital Act. It administers the federally owned lands and buildings in Canada's National Capital Region, including Ottawa, Ontario, and Gatineau, Quebec. The NCC replaced the Federal District Commission (FDC), which had been created in 1927, and the even earlier Ottawa Improvement Commission The NCC reports to Parliament through the Minister of Foreign Affairs and respects federal policies and guidelines. Historically, the NCC and its predecessors back to 1899 have focused on planning and building a capital that would reflect its national significance as the seat of the Government of Canada. In 1988, the NCC's mandate was amended and the Commission was asked to de-emphasize its involvement in the development of regional infrastructure and to focus more of its resources on the cultural dimension of the capital.
