The success of Prime Ministers' Row hinges on all three levels of government coming together to support this grassroots, community-led initiative. Here are some reasons why Prime Ministers' Row matters:

  • It will create a new view of Canada, transforming the way Canadians see their history. By bringing contemporary Canadians into this place, they are also inspired to be the leaders of its future.
  • It will unleash the tremendous economic, social and cultural potential of historic Sandy Hill and create a world-class National legacy.
  • It will forever change the face of Canada’s Capital in a unique and unexpected way.
  • It will celebrate our national identity, will protect a significant cultural landscape for future Canadians, and will create a sense of belonging for citizens across the country.
  • It will provide a significant boost to the city by growing its municipal tax base, improving small business sustainability and drawing more tourists throughout the year who will stay longer.
  • It will improve the health and quality of life for citizens by making an important urban thoroughfare more beautiful, more green, more walkable and more connected.
  • It will strengthen the nexus between the City of Ottawa and the National Capital.
