Doors Open Ottawa event at the PSAC

Want to visit one of Canada’s top 500 buildings?

Saturday, 4 and Sunday 5 June, 2016, the Workers’ History Museum (WHM) is hosting a Doors Open Ottawa event at the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) national headquarters, 233 Gilmour Street, Ottawa. Doors are open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The 12 storey PSAC HQ is a distinctive elliptical iron-spot brick building at the corner of Gilmour and Metcalfe. Designed by Paul Schoeler of Schoeler & Heaton Architects, it was completed in 1968. In 2000, the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada | Architecture Canada identified it as one of the top 500 buildings produced in Canada during the preceding millennium.

WHM volunteers will answer questions about the PSAC building and about Workers’ History Museum exhibits which will be on display there.

Renovations are underway, so please enter the building by the rear entrance.
