The Department of Canadian Heritage, in cooperation with the LGBT Purge Fund and the National Capital Commission, invites teams of professional artists, landscape architects, architects, and other urban design professionals to submit their credentials and examples of prior work for the first part of a two-phase competition to design a new national monument in Ottawa.
