The Confederation Life Building is one of the finest Chicago School style buildings in Winnipeg with its curved facade following the bend in Main Street. The twelve-storey building is constructed of steel and reinforced concrete and has a white terracotta facade with a base of polished granite. The interior is finished in marble and bronze. The massive overhanging cornice is particularly impressive.
