About us

Representing Canada's republican movement since 2002, Citizens for a Canadian Republic is a registered non-partisan, not-for-profit organization advocating the full Canadianization of the head of state. 

We are in favour of the following:

  • A governor general evolving into Canada's official head of state, constitutionally separate and distinct from the British monarchy,
  • preserving the function and traditions of our government as a parliamentary republic,
  • celebrating all of Canada's culture and heritage,
  • continuing Canada's involvement in the Commonwealth of Nations, where most members are already republics.

CCR's activities are predominantly educational, including: 

  • Maintaining a website and social media as portals to unite Canadian republicans and provide  information about what a parliamentary republic is, why it's inevitable, and how to attain it, 
  • liaising with the media by issuing press releases and providing commentators across the country in both official languages, 
  • and networking with supporters in all political parties who tirelessly work behind the scenes to help raise our cause to a higher level of priority.

In addition, CCR maintains a strong relationship with organizations representing republican movements in Australia, New Zealand and the UK, with whom we communicate regularly to help develop a Commonwealth-wide republican effort.
