34 ReNew Canada
Government of Canada
The Government of Canada is undertaking a comprehensive
rehabilitation of the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. Work is
underway to restore and modernize the Centre Block, the most
iconic and impressive of the Parliament buildings. It will undergo extensive interior and exterior upgrades.
The Centre Block Rehabilitation Project is the largest, most
complex heritage rehabilitation project ever seen in Canada
and one of the largest in the world. Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is using innovative approaches and
technologies throughout the project. When the Centre Block
reopens, it will be ready to meet the needs of a 21st-century
Parliament for years to come.
Today, the Centre Block is a busy construction site with activity inside and out:
• Excavation to accommodate the new Parliament Welcome
Centre has begun
• Demolition and abatement activities inside the Centre Block
are well underway
• PSPC is restoring the building’s heritage masonry and ensuring the structure meets modern seismic standards
In June 2021, PSPC unveiled the design, scope, and anticipated timelines of the rehabilitation project. The current cost
estimate is between $4.5 and $5 billion, and the targeted completion date is between 2030 and 2031. The Centre Block is estimated to reopen one year later. Overall, the project remains
within scope and is progressing on time and within budget.
