Did You Know?

The National Arts Centre (NAC) is Canada’s bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for the performing arts. The NAC presents, creates, produces, and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada.

In 2016, Benson Steel fabricated and erected the steel structure that supports the Centre. The NAC rejuvenation was the largest government investment in an architectural project to mark Canada’s 150 Anniversary. For the opening, Prince Charles attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony to draw the curtain on a refreshed theatrical space ready
to entertain more than 1.2 million visitors annually.
