Parliament Hill is the precinct that for years dictated the development of the City of Ottawa, through both its physical location and the way it has shaped our city's real estate, job market, and image. It's an ever-changing landscape --- politically and physically --- on that bluff over the Ottawa River. This tour will attempt to explain how and why the precinct has developed as it has and the official plans for the future of the area up to 2032. Learn where new buildings will be placed and envisage how visitors might be welcomed to the Hill in a few years. We will stop by a few of the monuments along the way for some political anecdotes as well.
