Spur Halifax: Walking Tour of Lebanese Contributions to Halifax
Sun, 30 October 2016, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM ADT
For decades, Lebanese immigrants to Halifax have fundamentally shaped the city’s architectural identity. Buildings that shape our perception of Halifax, such as the nineteen-storey Trillium Condominium complex and the forthcoming one-million-square-foot Nova Centre, are built by companies founded by Lebanese immigrants. Many of these companies remain family-owned today.
Join Spur on a walk through Halifax’s downtown core as Immigration Minister Lena Metlege Diab and Norman Nahas, Lebanese Chamber of Commerce, explores the impact that over a century of Lebanese immigration has had on Halifax, both physically and culturally.
The is a free event programmed in partnership with the Halifax Lebanese Chamber of Commerce.
The walk will begin at a location to be determined near the Halifax Central LIbrary and finish near the University of KIng's College. Rain or shine!
