About the Parliamentary Precinct
The Parliamentary Precinct is home to Canada’s parliamentary system. The precinct is the physical expression of our commitment to democracy and the principle of freedom. It is where senators and members of Parliament work, along with the employees who support them. As well, it is an important place where Canadians gather to express themselves and to celebrate.
The Parliamentary Precinct is made up of the following buildings on Parliament Hill:
- Centre Block
- West Block
- East Block
- Library of Parliament
- Parliament Welcome Centre
- Confederation Building
- Justice Building
It also includes the grounds, the Senate of Canada Building, the three blocks south of Wellington Street and other buildings near Parliament Hill.
In total, the precinct includes 35 Crown-owned buildings, of which 28 are designated heritage properties.
We take our responsibility seriously in planning for the future of the Parliamentary Precinct campus.

The Long Term Vision and Plan
We work from a master plan that we call the Long Term Vision and Plan (LTVP) for the Parliamentary Precinct. The plan provides a detailed and coordinated approach to renovating, restoring and modernizing the Parliament buildings and federal buildings near them.
