The National Capital Commission is a Canadian Crown corporation that administers the federally owned lands and buildings in the National Capital Region .HistoryThe NCC was created in 1959, replacing the Federal District Commission, which had been created in 1927, and the even earlier Ottawa Improvement Commission. The NCC was created to replace the FDC because the latter had repeatedly failed to convince municipal governments to cooperate in planning efforts regarding the capital. Although the NCC was given the authority to implement its plans, an authority confirmed by the Supreme Court in Munro v. National Capital Commission, it has been criticized for failing to assert that authority effectively.The logo was modified in April 1999 with the formation of Nunavut as an independent territory from the Northwest Territories. The logo went from 10 shaded maple leaves and 2 blank maple leaves in a circular C shape, to ten shaded maple leaves and 3 blank maple leaves in a circular C shape.The Government of Canada asked for a formal review of the mandate of the NCC when taking office in 2006. A panel conducting the review, in its report, suggested that the Crown Corporation needed more money and should become more transparent. Although the government had promised to respond to the panel report by early 2007, it has yet to do so.OrganizationThe NCC is the responsibility of the Minister of Canadian Heritage, currently Mélanie Joly. It is governed by the National Capital Act, which explains the boundaries of the National Capital Region in great detail. Its headquarters are in the Chambers Building on Elgin Street, between Queen and Sparks Streets.
