Ottawa is home to approximately 9,800 residents of Lebanese heritage. The Lebanese community has contributed significantly to the City’s cultural, religious, economic and political landscape. On October 25, 2017, Ottawa has declared that November is Lebanese Heritage Month. The 28th Ottawa Annual Lebanese Festival will take place for five straight days this July! This event is an initiative that honors the Lebanese culture on the grounds of the St. Elias Cathedral!
