Rideau Hall / COVID-19

The health and safety of Canadians are of utmost importance to the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General (OSGG). 

We are in continuous contact with the Public Health Agency of Canada on the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as with local officials, for the latest advice and guidance. We have urged employees to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

To minimize risks, public tours of the residences are postponed and the grounds of Rideau Hall are closed until further notice.

To ensure the health and safety of our recipients and their families, our employees and the Governor General, please note that all events at both Rideau Hall and the Citadelle are cancelled or postponed until further notice.
