From bank to “hall of Parliament”

What was once the safety deposit vault at the Bank of Montreal branch at Sparks and O’Connor streets in Ottawa is now a very secure meeting space for Members of Parliament. While the space has been renovated, and is now equipped with huge projectors, speakers and acoustic panels, the door to the vault was preserved as a reminder of the building’s past. It’s just one feature of a much larger renovation of the Sir John A. Macdonald building, dubbed the “third hall of Parliament.”
