This event was held at the City Hall and Confederation Park. Participants were transported in two busses from Donald St. and Money’s Bay respectively. This was an event held during the family day, where the Syrian families had the possibility to interact with other Canadian families of diverse ethnic, language and socio cultural backgrounds; practice the official languages of Canada, enjoy the wonders of winter and snow such as ice sculptures, ice skating, the Rideau Canal, music, while having a hot chocolate or coffee, and the sweetness of a traditional beaver tail. Coincidentally, the mayor of Ottawa Mr. “Jim” Watson was a the city hall during arrival of the Syrian Families, so some of them have the opportunity to meet and interact with him, briefly discussing about their new lives in Canada. This was by far one of the events with the most participants, including 51 from Donald St and 68 from Mooney’s Bay
