On January 23, 2020, the LGBT Purge Fund received approval from the National Capital Commission for access to our preferred land location to build the LGBTQ2+ National Monument.
The monument will be built in downtown Ottawa in a large area of open land on Wellington Street. The site is located near the Portage Bridge (between Ontario and Quebec) and is close to the Ottawa River, the Supreme Court of Canada and the Parliament Buildings. It is a beautiful piece of land and it has enough space for gatherings of approx. 2000 people. The monument will be built by 2024. See the Projects Section of this website for further updates.
