National Asbestos Inventory of Natural Resources Canada Occupied Buildings

This National Asbestos Inventory lists all buildings owned, leased or occupied by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and indicates whether or not they contain asbestos as of September 29, 2017.

The inventory

To find out whether there is a known presence of asbestos in a building owned, leased or occupied by NRCan, locate the building in the inventory below. You can search by entering key words in the "Filter items" box. You can also sort certain columns to locate a building by its Directory of Federal Real Property unique number, name, city, province or territory, postal code or by asset type (Crown-owned or Lease).

Known presence of asbestos? Asbestos management plan in place?

Notes on the table:

  • Information on leased buildings was obtained from the landlords for each building. Landlords are responsible for information on leased buildings
  • Buildings that are part of a campus or grouping of buildings are listed under their individual building names and individual addresses, not the campus name. For example, in the inventory we can find Building 1 – Central Heating Plant, located at 1 Haanel Drive in Ottawa, but not the Bells Corners Complex campus.
  • Where there is no asbestos in a building, an asbestos management plan is not required

How Natural Resources Canada manages asbestos in its buildings

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) carefully manages the risks associated with asbestos in its buildings. All buildings owned or leased by NRCan that contain asbestos are required to have an asbestos management plan. If asbestos has recently been discovered, an asbestos management plan may not yet be in place. NRCan is working diligently with landlords to ensure that asbestos management plans are developed for the few leased buildings that do not yet have them.
