The House of Commons Heritage Collection is comprised of over 5,000 artifacts consisting of unique examples of fine art, the decorative arts, and associated artifacts. The importance of the collection rests in its value as a record of the material culture of the House of Commons, parliamentary democracy in Canada, and the development of Canadian society as a whole. The lecture by David Monaghan, Curator of the House of Commons, will explore the origins, character and use of the House of Commons Heritage Collection with particular emphasis on the period following the fire of 1916
