The Connaught Building
The Connaught Building is a historic office building in Ottawamarker, Canadamarker. It is located on Sussex Drive just to the north of the Chateau Lauriermarker and south of the American embassymarker. To the east the building looks out on the Byward Marketmarker and to the west is Majors Hill Parkmarker.

By the early twentieth century the Parliament Buildingsmarker were running out of space to house Canada's civil service. The Tudor-Gothic structure was designed by chief architect David Ewart who did the similarly styled Victoria Memorial Buildingmarker and Royal Canadian Mint. Work began on the building in 1913, but the First World War and other problems intervened, greatly slowing construction. The building was completed in 1916 and first housed the customs department. The building was named after the Duke of Connaught, then Governor General. Today it houses the headquarters the Canada Revenue Agency.
