Canada Place partially open on Thursday

The passport office will be open but Service Canada will stay closed

Canada Place will partially reopen today after flooding forced the building to close on Wednesday.

The Passport Office will be open to the public but the Service Canada Centre will remain closed.

People are being directed to other Service Canada offices in Edmonton at Meadowlark Shopping Centre, Millbourne Market Mall and Hermitage Square.

Late Tuesday afternoon, firefighters were called to the building after a pipe burst on the 4th floor

The flooding affected mechanical systems so the building was closed for health and safety reasons.

About 3,000 people work in Canada Place.
