Members of the public will be able to access the ardent chapel through the entrance to Wellington Street. Visitors will be required to undergo a security screening before entering the Sir John A. Macdonald Building.

Visits cannot extend beyond the scheduled end times. The Parliamentary Protective Service will monitor the number of people waiting in line to respect the time limit allocated for the chapel.

A portion of the center -city of Ottawa will be closed to traffic from Monday, March 18, at 6 p.m. until Wednesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. Here are the streets that will be affected:

The building and surrounding area will be subject to a significant police presence.

If it& #x27;is something they would wear to access a building in the parliamentary precinct, it would be completely acceptable, says Stephanie Milligan, who is a manager in the State Ceremonial and Protocol team at Canadian Heritage.

Visitors will therefore be able to wear casual attire, including jeans, to the ardent chapel. T-shirts with slogans that could be considered offensive are not permitted.

Another recommendation from Stephanie Milligan: For members of the public who are going to show up for the show, it's going to be quicker for them if they don't have large bags, given that there is a security check for the parliamentary precinct.

The atmosphere will be solemn. There will be a pre-established route to follow, which will allow visitors to walk slowly alongside the coffin and reflect. Towards the exit, visitors will have the opportunity to sign the condolence books, if they wish.

Although the tour is only expected to last a few minutes, Milligan assures visitors will have as much time as they want to pay their respects.

For the moment, we advise that no, indicates Stephanie Milligan. If there is a security process to access the building, the flowers may be crushed in that process, she warns.

It is precisely planned that visitors will be subject to a security check before being able to access the ardent chapel.

People who wish to bring wreaths of flowers can place them on Parliament Hill next to the centennial flame.

Just to be present for the exhibition in burning chapel, It's the gesture that counts, she continues.
