Public Services & Procurement Canada (PSPC) is moving forward with rehabilitation of the building, which was built from 1938 to 1940. A request for proposal to select a planning and design firm will be launched this summer.

The building houses the court, its judges and staff, as well as courtrooms and chambers for the Federal Court of Appeal and the Federal Court. Rehabilitation is expected to begin in 2023 and be completed in 2028.

The Supreme Court of Canada Building will be vacated while it is restored, and occupants will use the West Memorial Building during the rehabilitation work. The West Memorial Building has been vacant since 2008 and will be undergoing renovations from 2019 to 2023 to prepare it for use. A tender has already been launched for preliminary work for the West Memorial Building.
