Pickering building Heritage & Community centre

Ontario Construction News staff writer

Construction is underway at the Pickering Heritage & Community Centre (PHCC), to bring a museum, library, and community centre together.

Construction on the 44,000 sq. ft. facility on the upper site of the Pickering Museum Village at 2365 6th Concession Road, is being carried out by J.R. Certus Construction Co. Ltd., and is expected to be completed by early 2026.

The design is a collaborative effort between city staff, Hariri Pontarini Architects, and community members who shared input.

The total project cost is estimated at $64.7 million and at full build-out, the PHCC will include:

  • an exhibit gallery
  • program room
  • multi-purpose hall with a stage
  • kitchen suitable for public programs
  • collections storage
  • gift shop and coffee bar
  • outdoor program spaces

To support the construction of the new facility, the city received $16.5 million in funding – $12.5 million from Infrastructure Canada’s Green & Inclusive Community Buildings Program and $4 million from the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Cultural Spaces Fund.
