About the Long Term Vision and Plan

In the fiscal year from 2016 to 2017, the Security Infrastructure Program was created to address the growing number of security related projects being delivered under the LTVP.

The year ahead

Major LTVP advances will be made in the fiscal year 2017 to 2018 leading up to the full rehabilitation of the Centre Block beginning in 2018.

The rehabilitation of the West Block and the Government Conference Centre will continue, with both projects being completed for the opening session of Parliament in the fall of 2018.

With the approval of the authorities for the Centre Block rehabilitation, the LTVP will also be updated to shift focus in the Precinct from a building-by-building approach, which has been essential to getting to the Centre Block, to a campus approach that will better support the operations of Parliament, as well as the Prime Minister’s and Privy Council Offices and ensure that all buildings in the precinct are preserved and maintained for another 150 years.
