Ottawa 2017

Canada’s diversity is an integral part of its history, its heritage, its pride…its DNA.

This series of world-class cultural events will promote and strengthen ties between nations on the occasion of Canada’s 150 anniversary. All residents are encouraged to join the festivities and thus, dive into a unique multicultural atmosphere. Indulge yourself in food tasting, musical celebrations, artistic performances and more!
