July 1, 2017 was a memorable day in NAC history as we officially opened the first phase of our spectacular Architectural Rejuvenation Project. 

Patrons, subscribers, visitors and artists had their first glimpse of the new Elgin level of the north atrium with its gorgeous public spaces connecting to the original building.  Phase 1 also includes a fully accessible Elgin Street entrance, a relocated box office, and three times as many washrooms as we had before.

This fall you can anticipate many more exciting changes.  Phase 2 will see the opening of the Terrace level of the north atrium, including beautiful public rooms that will be used as performance and event space, with some of the most stunning views of the capital.  The transformed Fourth Stage will also reopen, welcoming hundreds of Canadian artists this coming season through NAC Presents.

Please visit us soon.  We look forward to sharing our newly rejuvenated NAC with you.
