A compellingly browsable, exhaustively researched, uniquely informative guide to Canada’s Parliament. Exploring the Hill is packed with photographs and facts that provide fascinating perspectives on the architecture, art, history, people, pageants and politics of Parliament Hill.

The author reveals new insights into the original and ongoing planning, construction, and design, including intriguing lesser-known features such as hidden corridors and secret staircases. Much-admired details such as the magnificent wood and stone carvings, decorative metalwork and plaster ornamentation are showcased.

Not just an architectural overview, in Exploring the Hill you’ll meet the people who have worked on the Hill, from those who made history, to those who will. The book also includes an overview of the structure of the federal government, the process of forming policies and laws, and the roles of its members.

This insider’s behind-the-scenes guide to the most-visited destination in Canada, is must reading for resident and tourist alike.
