Confederation Hall located immediately inside the main entrance.

The perimeter of Hall is divided by limestone clustered columns into eight bays of two different sizes. Around the central column is an inlaid marble floor with a 16 point windrose.

Confederation Hall was the last part of the Centre Block's interior to be completed. Upon completion of this work, the gables of the arch tympanums were adorned with the coats of arms of Canada and the provinces, each surrounded by relevant floral symbols.
