Official Residence of the Prime Minister

24 Sussex Drive, in Ottawa, Ontario is the official residence of the Prime Minister of Canada. The house was built by a wealthy American mill owner named Joseph Merrill Currier in 1867-1868. The official residence was purchased by the federal government in 1943, at which time the house was renovated and redesigned to its present state.
Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent (1948-1957) became the first P.M. to live at 24 Sussex Drive. Since then, every newly elected Prime Minister has lived in the official residence during his time in office. Many changes have been made to the inside of the house to suit each Prime Minister. The biggest change occurred in 1975 when an indoor swimming pool was added by Pierre Elliot Trudeau.
The house sits in a beautiful spot above the Ottawa River on a cliff not far from the Parliament Buildings.
