Parliament: The Virtual Experience (Web Site)

Top of page

Parliament is the heart of Canada’s federal democracy. For more than 100 years, its seat was Centre Block, best recognized by the iconic Peace Tower. Home to the Senate and the House of Commons, the building was the site of debates and decisions that shaped our country. Each year, it welcomed thousands of visitors to discover the significance of the work, people and architecture of the space.

This historic building has now closed its doors for long-term renovations; however, the public can still experience it through innovative immersive technologies. Step inside the doors of Parliament online, in virtual reality or in your classroom, and discover how the work of Canada’s national legislature affects you.

Parliament: The Virtual Experience will transport you through Centre Block’s most iconic spaces: the Senate, House of Commons, Library of Parliament and Peace Tower. Each one offers a new perspective on Parliament—its history, its art and its role in the lives of Canadians, today and in the future.
