  • Lebanese Canadian House - Lebanese Diaspora Village - Batroun, Lebanon


    By Norman Nahas

    The Lebanese Diaspora Village is a touristic and cultural project that includes the restoration of 12 ancient houses surrounding a central courtyard, cafe, museum and hotel.

    It will serve as a place of gathering for both emigrants and locals, while helping to foster a deeper connection to Lebanon and also promote trade and tourism.

    This development is currently being constructed within the ancient town of Batroun, Lebanon and is part of the vision of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants, H.E. Minister Gebran Bassil to facilitate bonds amongst other Lebanese throughout the world.

    Each of the ancient houses will represent a different region around the world where Lebanese emigrants have located and influenced over time, including Canada, USA, UAE, Mexico, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Africa, Australia and Russia.

    On May 7 2016, the Russian Home was officially opened and a ceremony was held to celebrate the occasion, as well as the ties between Lebanon and Russia. The pictures below show the look of the finished structure. The next step will be to provide content about Russia, as well as the Lebanese within it.
