Justice Building

Orientation & Geography

North America, Canada, Ottawa

The Justice Building in Ottawa was previously home to the Department of Justice (Canada), and now houses offices of Members of Parliament. It is similar in design as the Confederation Building, to which it is just west. Originally called Block D, it was built from 1935 to 1938 for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). It was renovated in 1998-2001 and now houses some of the offices of Members of Parliament. In Ian Fleming's short story "For Your Eyes Only" James Bond visits the RCMP headquarters when it was located in this building, and the book contains a description of the structure.
