The federal and provincial governments are investing in restoring the 107-year old Ferry Building.
The restoration will include the relocation of the building slightly to the east of its current location, to higher ground, in order to protect it from rising flood levels due to impacts of climate change. Seismic and envelope upgrades, constructing washrooms, and installing a ramp to make the building more accessible are also part of the project. The project is co-funded by the District and the federal and provincial governments. The restoration is scheduled to begin in fall 2020 and be completed in spring 2022.
We’re currently closed between exhibitions. The next exhibition opens soon.
Due to COVID-19, the Ferry Building Gallery is closed until further notice.
