Justin Trudeau and his family will not be moving into the traditional Prime Minister’s residence at 24 Sussex Drive.
Instead, Trudeau and and his family will live in Rideau Cottage until further notice.
The 19th century home is located on the grounds of Rideau Hall, the Governor General’s residence.
The residence at 24 Sussex has been in need of repairs for years.
In 2008, the National Capital Commission estimated repairs would cost about $10 million and would require full access to the residence for a minimum of 12 to 15 months.
