100 Wellington future use

On June 21, 2017, the Prime Minister announced that the former U.S. Embassy at 100 Wellington Street in Ottawa, will become a space for Indigenous Peoples. Read the announcement on the future use of this heritage building.

Creating a space for Indigenous Peoples directly across from Parliament Hill symbolizes a turning point in Canada’s relationship with Indigenous Peoples. This location provides a concrete marker of the importance of Indigenous Peoples to this country’s past, present and future. The government will work in partnership with representatives of the Assembly of First Nations, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and the Métis National Council on next steps in the design and redevelopment of 100 Wellington. Timelines and budget estimates will be established once planning for the space advances.

The redevelopment of 100 Wellington is part of the Long Term Vision and Plan for the Parliamentary Precinct.

Consulting the public on the future use

In the summer of 2016, Canadians were invited to provide their input and ideas on the future use of the building. Over 6,500 Canadians, as well as over 500 international visitors to the nation’s capital, shared their views which helped inform the government’s decision.
