Rideau Hall / COVID-19

The health and safety of Canadians are of the 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.

As of Aug. 1, 2020, the grounds of Rideau Hall are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. via Sussex Gate.  Visitors are asked to follow all public health protocols.

To minimize risks, public tours of the residences are currently suspended.

To ensure the health and safety of guests, our employees and the Governor General, please note that all in-person events at both Rideau Hall and the Citadelle of Québec are postponed until further notice.
