About Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is the national assembly of the Bishops of Canada. It was founded in 1943 and officially recognized by the Holy See in 1948. After the Second Vatican Council (1962–65), the CCCB became part of a worldwide network of Episcopal Conferences which are integral to the universal Church. The CCCB enables the Bishops of Canada to collaborate in their service to the Catholics of Canada, while respecting the autonomy of each Bishop in his responsibilities for his particular diocese.
