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

To minimize risks, public tours of Rideau Hall and the Citadelle are suspended until further notice. Book your spot on our online guided tour of the official residences to learn more from the comfort of your home.

The grounds of Rideau Hall are open daily from 8 a.m. to one hour before sunset.

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