Project 3: National cultural and scientific institutions

National cultural and scientific institutions

The NCC will support the work of Library and Archives Canada, PSPC, and other partners to create a national portrait gallery. It will also support NRC’s goal of making 100 Sussex Drive a science and innovation hub. In the core area and along the north shore of the Ottawa River and the Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir George-Étienne Cartier parkways, the NCC will reserve sites for extensions of and additions to existing museums, such as the Canada Science and Technology Museum. It will also support the establishment of a national botanical garden on the west side of the Rideau Canal.
