Help us Restore and Preserve The Landmark Central Fire Hall

An exceptional expression of Canadian Architecture and Fire Fighting History built in 1920  in the Edwardian Classical Style with a basilica plan unique among 20th century Canadian fire halls.  Designed by French Canadian architect Walter W. LaChance.  Inside, the original equipment and furniture from the 1920’s -1960’s will be restored for public display.   Upper floors will be a multi use centre supporting the project.  We’re counting on your support!  Look for the link to our Go Fund Me page coming soon.
