Restoration Complete

The removal of the scaffolding marks the end of Phase 1 of the restoration of McDougall Church.

The project began in July 2016 and was completed 11 months later. The building’s iconic towers and the front of the church have been cleaned, bricks refurbished and cornices replaced and repaired. As additional funding becomes available, we will complete the north and east facades and then begin upgrading the interior.

The project was funded by the Province of Alberta, the City of Edmonton and McDougall United Church. The Province spent $750,000, the City of Edmonton spent $500,000 and McDougall Church spent $100,000.

We want to thank our partners, Ledcor, Group 2, and Next Architecture, as well as sub-contractors and consultants.

The Church was declared a Provincial Historic Resource in April 2015, and a Municipal Historic Resource in 2016, and remains a facility for the entire Edmonton Community.

Recent community events include the Edmonton International Choral Festival hosted by Pro Coro Canada on June 2-4 with venues throughout the city. McDougall Church will open its doors from July 2-4 as part of the Edmonton Historical Society’s Historic Festival and Doors Open event. It is also a designated tour site for the Downtown Business Association’s downtown summer walking tours hosted by their Core Crew guides.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church became Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards Breastfeeding logobreastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
