Federal Land Use and Design Approval – Parliamentary Precinct – Centre Block Rehabilitation Program and Parliament Welcome Centre
The Board of Directors approved the schematic design for the rehabilitation of the Centre Block and Parliament welcome centre.
This Public Services and Procurement Canada project is the most complex heritage rehabilitation initiative ever undertaken in Canada. It involves the following:
- the full rehabilitation of the historic Centre Block building;

- changes to the landscape and exterior lighting of the parliamentary grounds and buildings.
Energy Services Acquisition Program – Modernized Gatineau Energy Centre Schematic Design
The Board of Directors approved the schematic design for the modernized Gatineau Energy Centre. Located at 83 Sacré-Coeur Boulevard, the centre will be a below-grade, electric-powered central heating and cooling plant. The site will be converted to a publicly accessible green space with pedestrian connections to the surrounding neighbourhood.
The construction of this centre is part of Public Services and Procurement Canada’s Energy Services Acquisition Program. The program will modernize the energy system that heats and cools over 80 federal buildings in the region.
Building Envelope Replacement Project for Les Terrasses de la Chaudière by Public Services and Procurement Canada – Federal Design Approval
The Board of Directors approved the design for the replacement of the Terrasses de la Chaudière building envelope. This Public Services and Procurement Canada rehabilitation project will create more sustainable workspaces.
As part of the approval, PSPC will be required to prepare a comprehensive plan that will detail the overall strategy to integrate this complex into the urban fabric of downtown Gatineau.
Renaming Nepean Point
The NCC Board of Directors has approved new names for Nepean Point and the new pedestrian bridge connecting Major’s Hill Park to Nepean Point.
The new names are as follows:
- Nepean Point: Kìwekì Point (meaning “returning to one’s homeland”)
- Pedestrian bridge: Pìdàban Bridge (meaning “dawn”)
The names selected are in line with the interpretation plan for the Nepean Point redevelopment, as well as with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action. These new names highlight Algonquin voices, and showcase Algonquin culture and language.
