The Parliamentary Precinct
Home of the Parliament of Canada

A major undertaking is underway to preserve Canada's parliamentary buildings and grounds. Time and nature have taken their toll and the buildings, some of which predate Confederation, are suffering from deterioration.

As the custodian of the Parliamentary Precinct, which includes Parliament Hill and the facing street, the mandate of Public Works and Government Services includes ensuring that this iconic corner of Canada is preserved for all Canadians.

To follow the rehabilitation of the century-old site, and to get a sense of the day-to-day operations that keep the democratic heart of Canada ticking, you are welcome to explore our website.
