Gulf Fisheries Building
This 1948-1949 stone façade building is a designated Federal Heritage Building, recognized for its historical and cultural significance as the Collège Notre-Dame d’Acadie, which was a college and boarding school for Acadian women until 1964. Currently housing a division of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Heritage Standing Inc. supported an architecture firm to provide a structure and envelope condition assessment, including non- and minimally invasive testing. The assessment was part of a larger feasibility investigation of the potential rehabilitation of the Gulf Fisheries building. Heritage Standing Inc.'s assessment provided the basis for prioritized recommendations of work required to rehabilitate the building.
