PROBUS Ottawa – Alta Vista – monthly meeting

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Presentation about the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum.

The Diefenbunker is a massive four-storey underground bunker, built between 1959 and 1961. During the Cold War, top officials were to take shelter here in the event of a nuclear war. It was active as Canadian Forces Station Carp until 1994.
Today, it operates as a not-for-profit, charitable museum with award-winning tours and programs.

Dr. Barry Bruce is the Principal Founding Member of the Diefenbunker Development Group. He was the driving force behind the acquisition of the Bunker from West Carleton Township and the idea to turn the facility into a proper museum Board.

Barry served as the Chairman and CEO of the Museum (1998 to 2002) and President of the Museum Board of Directors (2002 to 2010).
