Tunney's Pasture - From vision to reality!

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Welcome to the Tunney’s Pasture website where you can stay informed on how we will be bringing the vision for Tunney’s Pasture to reality. Here you will find information on:

The Tunney’s Pasture site (121 acres/49 hectares) is bounded by the National Capital Commission (NCC) parkway and Ottawa River to the north, Parkdale Avenue to the east, Scott Street and Light Rail Transit to the south and the Champlain Park community to the west. There are 17 buildings on the federal government employment campus, serving various departments including Health Canada and Statistics Canada.

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is responsible for the strategic management of Tunney’s Pasture, and is collaborating with Canada Lands Company (Canada Lands) to realize the site’s transformation as envisioned in the Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan.


Over the long term, Tunney’s Pasture will be transformed from a single-use employment centre into a vibrant transit-oriented and sustainable mixed-use community that is integrated with surrounding neighbourhoods, while maintaining a strong federal presence.


Inspired by strong Guiding Principles, here is a list of some of the great things to come at Tunney’s Pasture over the long term:

  • new housing that delivers on the city’s needs and meets requirements for affordable housing
  • a connected, sustainable and complete community that makes full use of public transit to create walkable neighbourhoods
  • a reimagined federal footprint that supports federal workers, while considering climate change, effects of the pandemic on office accommodation requirements, and the need to create efficient workspaces
  • new green and open spaces that provide connections through and around the site as well as to existing communities and the Ottawa River
  • opportunities for shared amenities, including shopping, recreation and others for residents and workers
  • a modernized and environmentally friendly district energy system for heating and cooling
  • a commitment to ongoing engagement with Indigenous Peoples, residents, communities, and stakeholders

PSPC and Canada Lands are currently working diligently to develop a plan on how the vision of Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan will be realized over the long term.

See our Project Updates below and visit this site often for the latest information on our plans. We also invite you to sign up to be the first to hear about updates and opportunities for input.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Thank you for participating in our questionnaire. Your feedback is important.

    Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) and Canada Lands are collaborating to develop a long-term plan to transform Tunney’s Pasture from a single-use employment centre into a vibrant, sustainable, mixed-use community. 

    The redevelopment of Tunney’s Pasture is guided by the award-winning Tunney’s Pasture Master Plan, which was approved in 2014. 

    While work on the planning of Tunney’s Pasture has been ongoing, there are important decisions that have yet to be taken. We recognize that a lot has happened since 2014 and we want to make sure that we have a solid understanding of what the community values when it comes to the future of Tunney’s. 

    The questions below will help us identify a set of “community values” that reflect the community’s vision for this site, based on today’s realities. These values will influence future decision making when it comes to the finer details of the development.  The exercise will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. 

    The closing date is June 19, 2022. If you have any questions, or trouble completing the questionnaire, please contact info@paceconsulting.ca.

    Thank you!
