  • Visitor Information

Canadian athletes need look no further than Canada House this summer, their home-from-home for the Olympic period. The Canadian Committee will take up residence in the centrally located Trafalgar Square building. Built in 1824, the Canadians have occupied the building since 1923 and it was a popular place for Canadian soldiers to socialise during WWII. The House continues to promote Canadian culture, and now functions as a diplomatic and public educational space. The House will be used as a central London base for the 300 Canadian athletes and their families, a place where relatives can receive support and assistance throughout their visit, leaving the competitors free to focus on bringing back the medals. Canada House will also be used for media and sponsor events, and as a place of celebration. During the Paralympics, Canada House will be relocated to the Bishopsgate Institute.
