This two-storey brick and stone building on the Fort Garry Campus of the University of Manitoba was designed by local architects Samuel Hooper and Victor Horwood, and built between 1912 and 1913 as part of the Manitoba Agricultural College. Initially, it was the residence for the Principal of the College and later the President of the University of Manitoba. Later occupants included the Natural Resources Institute. Renamed Chancellor’s Hall in 2006, it presently houses the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.
