Have your say!

Respond to our survey on this year’s edition of Open NCC. The survey should take approximately five minutes to complete.

LeBreton Flats is one of the most exciting redevelopment projects in Canada. Through this project, the NCC is transforming a 29-hectare site into a landmark destination and community filled with parks and amenities.

Come explore the Flats, see the progress made so far (including the crow sculpture, entitled When the Rubber Meets the Road by Gerald Beaulieu) and meet our experts to learn about the rich history of this site and plans for the future.
