Supreme Court of Canada Doors Open Ottawa

Supreme Court of Canada

The court’s distinguished presence is emphasized by its massive, commanding grand entrance hall. The art deco design enhances the natural beauty of the exquisite woods and marble interior. After delays due to the Second World War, the court took possession of the building in 1946. The grand entrance hall and courtroom will be open during Doors Open. Some photography restrictions.
