Supreme Court building to get $1B rehab in 2023, well after systems risk failure

Supreme Court of Canada building on Wellington Street, Ottawa

The Supreme Court building, opened in 1939, is crumbling, with major systems at risk of failure in the next three years. But a $1-billion rehabilitation project isn’t scheduled to begin until 2023. Officials at Public Services and Procurement Canada say they’ll monitor for “potential failures” in the meantime.
