Update Coming on Condition of 24 Sussex Drive Along with Upcoming Work
While the Prime Minister may not live at 24 Sussex Drive, the official residence of Canada’s prime minister, the building is still costing Canadians money.
In the years 2019 and 2020, operations costs were approximately $84,148 according to the National Capital Commission (NCC).
Since 2018, the NCC has not made any capital investment in support of the rehabilitation of 24 Sussex Drive.
