On Indigenous People’s day 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the former U.S Embassy in Ottawa would be repurposed as a space for Indigenous Peoples.

This survey seeks to gather feedback about the future use of 100 Wellington, so that the ideas of Indigenous Peoples can be heard and shared.
