Parliament (French: Parlement) will be an underground station on the Ottawa Confederation Line as part of the O-Train network. The stop will be located under O'Connor and Queen in Downtown Ottawa[2] and is currently slated for completion by 2019.[3] It has the highest projected use of all new stops on the Confederation Line,[3] with access to Parliament Hill, Sparks Street, the downtown business district, as well as the World Exchange Plaza and Bank Street.

Entrances will be integrated with the Sun Life Financial Centre and Heritage Place.

The Grand Hall Concourse will be 15 metres underground, while the platform itself will be 19 metres.[3]
