This walk will begin in front of the Halifax Central Library on Spring Garden Road. Look out for the Spur banner!
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.
