Mark your calendars, Foodies! On December 9th and 10th, Parliament Hill will host Flavours of the North, a FREE northern food tasting event as part of the Canada 150 closing celebrations.

Top Canadian chefs will team up with local food trucks and Indigenous chefs to cook up northern fare. There will be samples of "tuktu" stew and smoked arctic char chowder as well as traditional Inuit (Labrador) tea and bannock cooked over a fire pit. Have more of a sweet tooth? Don’t worry!
