West Memorial Building Rehabilitation Project

West Memorial Building Rehabilitation Project


Built in the 1950s, the West Memorial Building and its sister, the East Memorial Building, are the Government of Canada’s primary tribute to those who lost their lives during the Second World War. After completing the rehabilitation of the East Memorial Building in March 1998, Public Services and Procurement Canada is now working on the West Memorial Building to make it a sustainable, modern and fully accessible workspace, while also conserving its heritage character. The construction work on this “Classified” federal heritage building is scheduled to begin in fall 2019, with completion of the project in 2023. Once the rehabilitation is complete, the West Memorial Building will be a temporary home to the occupants of the Supreme Court of Canada Building while it undergoes its own rehabilitation. The long-term vision for this historical landmark in the downtown core of Ottawa is to serve as office space for public servants while remaining an important part of Canadian history.
