Senate’s temporary home nearing completion

Senators toured the former train station that will be home to the temporary Senate chamber.

Senators got a sneak peek of the temporary Senate chamber, housed in Ottawa’s historic train station.

The Government Conference Centre, which was built in 1912 as a train station, will be the Senate’s temporary home while Centre Block gets a major renovation. The Senate is expected to move in the fall of 2018 as the decade-long renovation project gets underway.
