The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) says Montreal's Olympic House won't open before Dec. 31, 2017.
The original deadline was slated for December 2016, but the COC says that won't be possible.
The City of Montreal's executive committee voted Wednesday to extend the deadline of its funding agreement and provide the last installment of $800,000.
The city has already put $1.1 million into the Olympic House, of a $2-million total pledge.
The building held a grand opening in July of 2015 that cost a reported $1 million.

Still the building has remained closed to the public, with a series of delays and cost overruns announced in February of this year.
Olympic House is intended to be the COC's headquarters in Montreal, as well as having a public exhibition space called "The Olympic Experience." It will also house many sports federations' offices.
This executive committee's decision must be approved at the next Montreal Agglomeration Council meeting, set for Oct. 27.
This $10 million project is being supporting by federal, provincial and municipal governments.
