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!
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
