Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) is responsible for the collection of electronic intelligence to support national defence and the foreign policy of the Canadian government, as well as the protection of electronic information and communication, and important government information infrastructure. The new 72,000-square-metre facility, which is targeting LEED-Gold certification, will include both general office space and special purpose space, as well as employee amenities such as cafeteria and gym, and a substantial outdoor landscaped area.
