Located on 10 Armoury Street, just north of City Hall, the new 20-metre tall atrium enclosed by a highly transparent, glazed façade will create continued dialogue with the city. Another inclusive feature is a new learning centre, where students delve into indigenous history and the intricacies of the Ontario justice system.
