Message from Honourable Rachel Notley Premier of Alberta On behalf of the Government of Alberta, it is my pleasure to send greetings to the readers of Leb411. The Lebanese community has been part of Alberta for more than a century, whether you are a newcomer, or have deep roots in Alberta Leb411, like its online component Leb411.com, enhances the connections within Alberta’s diverse cultural communities. For everything from businesses information, upcoming events, community news, announcements, and much more, Leb411 is an invaluable resource. Thank you to the creators, contributors, and all of the people behind the scenes at Leb 411 for offering a gateway to the many economic, social, and cultural opportunities that flourish in our province.

The publishers of Leb411 deserve my highest commendation for providing an invaluable service to not only the Lebanese community but also the community at large. This book introduces us to the many individuals and groups who care passionately about their businesses and professions and the people they are meant to serve.

The impetus for this directory was to celebrate all the Lebanese shopkeepers and professionals who extend a valuable service to the Edmonton community. Today, the Lebanese community continues to feature prominently within the pages of this book but in addition, members of a diverse multicultural group of businesses and professions in the greater Edmonton area are showcased. All contributors should be recognized for their hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, and success in each of their respective organizations or businesses.

As the educational leader of the Edmonton Islamic Academy, it is my privilege to lead 1200 students representing 26 cultures. The majority of our students represent the Lebanese community and therefore, it is reasonable to expect that the journey of our young students may one day lead them to be featured in Leb411, Inshallah.

Thank you, Leb411, for creating a user-friendly tool for all people to access businesses and professional services in Edmonton. This directory makes life a little easier to navigate. Congratulations Leb411 on your success! Mona Nashman-Smith Edmonton Islamic Academy

Edmonton is proud to be a multicultural city. As home to more than 70 unique ethnic groups, our city is made stronger by the many cultures and traditions that contribute to our social fabric. For more than 10 years, the annual Alberta Lebanese Directory has been a valuable resource for our Lebanese community and business leaders. Featuring everything from food and health to insurance and legal services, this guide connects Lebanese Canadians to information about Lebanese events and services throughout Western Canada. I thank everyone involved in creating this directory. By continuing to promote Lebanese culture, you are enhancing Edmonton’s multicultural community and spirit of inclusion. Yours truly,

A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR NENSHI On behalf of my City Council colleagues and the citizens of Calgary, I am pleased to offer my warmest greetings for the 2016 edition of the Alberta Lebanese Directory. It can be difficult for immigrants to adapt to a new home in a new country, but having a resource such as Leb411 can be very helpful. For years, Leb411 has been a source for connecting Lebanese Albertans to each other and to Lebanese businesses. I am proud to be the Mayor of a city where so many different cultures thrive together to create such a vibrant community. Your commitment to sharing your heritage with all Calgarians helps to ensure our city’s rich culture. I commend the publishers of the Alberta Lebanese Directory for providing members of Calgary’s Lebanese community with this valuable guide. Best wishes for continued success. Sincerely,

Naheed K. Nenshi MAYOR

Trip to Lebanon

7

Planning a trip to Lebanon? Some things you should know... 1-Entry Requirements

Visas: All foreigners must have a valid passport and visa to enter Lebanon. Passports must be valid for at least six months. Visas can be obtained in advance at Lebanese embassies and consulates around the world. Nationals of many countries can also obtain business or tourist visas upon arrival at the Beirut Airport and at other ports of entry on the Lebanese border. At the Beirut Airport, visa stamps can be purchased at a window directly across from passport control. You can pay in cash in U.S. dollars or Lebanese pounds. The price of a 15-day visa is US$17 (LL25,000). A single entry, three-month visa is US$35 (LL50,000). Contact the Lebanese embassy or consulate in your country or see the General Directorate of General Security website for additional visa information. Important Note: Travelers holding passports that contain visas or entry/exit stamps for Israel are likely to be refused entry into Lebanon.

CUSTOMS

All ordinary personal effects are exempt from customs duty.

2-Currency

The official Lebanese currency is the Lebanese pound or lira (LL). Notes are available in denominations of: LL1,000; LL5,000; LL10,000; LL20,000; LL50,000; and LL100,000. There are also LL250 and LL500 coins. U.S. dollars are used widely throughout the country. Restaurants, hotels, and stores often quote their prices in U.S. dollars, and many establishments will convert and provide U.S. dollar prices for you upon request. The US$/LL exchange rate is relatively stable, hovering around US$1=LL1,500.

3- Language

While Arabic is Lebanon’s official language, English and French are widely spoken. Most Lebanese speak at least two or three languages, and visitors will find no problems communicating. Many establishments provide signs, menus, and information in both Arabic and English.

• Orthodox Good Friday • Catholic Easter • Orthodox Easter • Ras As-Sana (Muslim New Year) • Eid Al-Fitr (three days) • Eid Al-Adha (three days) • Al-Ashoura • Moulid An-Nabi (Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday)

7-Communications TELEPHONES:

While the telephone system in Lebanon is well-developed, there are few public pay phones, and international phone calls are expensive. Most Lebanese use mobile phones, and coverage extends throughout the country. The country code for Lebanon is (961). This is followed by the local area code and the telephone number. The area code for mobile phones is (03) and the area code for Beirut is (01). If you are dialing Lebanon from outside the country, omit the (0) in the area code.

INTERNET:

There are Internet cafés available throughout Lebanon, and many larger hotels now offer high-speed and wireless Internet access for free or for a small fee. 3G is now available.

8-Electricity

Electric current is 110/220 volts, 50 cycles. A two-pin plug, with round pins is commonly used (Type C, similar to many European countries), but other types of plugs are also in use so it is best to check before you go.

9-Health

Lebanon is a developed country with relatively good health facilities. Similar to travel to other foreign countries, hepatitis A and B vaccines are recommended; also make sure tetanus-diphtheria and measles vaccinations are up-todate. A typhoid vaccine is also recommended for travel to Lebanon. Although Beirut’s tap water is considered safe to drink, it’s probably best to drink bottled water as the Lebanese do. As is the general traveler’s rule, to be absolutely safe drink water only from bottles with intact caps, do not take ice in your drinks, and eat only cooked food and fruits that you can peel.

Trip to Lebanon/ Fast Food/Dinning

Culture & History

An interesting archaeological relic found throughout Lebanon is the hundreds of well-preserved mosaics from the Roman and Byzantine eras. Countless colorful, tiny stones form intricate images of mythological figures, religious deities, and geometric designs. The mosaic is symbolic of modern-day Lebanon, which is a country characterized by a diversity of cultures, traditions, and religions interwoven through time. It is this unique diversity which fascinates travelers. Thanks to its location at the crossroads of Asia, Europe, and Africa, Lebanon has been shaped by many civilizations throughout history. Its position as a

meeting point for diverse peoples is evident in the extraordinary richness of its archaeological sites and historical monuments. From Stone Age settlements to Phoenician city-states, from Roman temples to rock-cut Christian hermitages, from Crusader Castles to Mamluke mosques and Ottoman hammams, the country’s historical sites are a true encyclopedia of ancient and modern world history. Modern Lebanese society is characterized by this same cultural diversity.

Trip to Lebanon

preconceived notions that linger from a relatively short moment in a long, vivid, and fascinating history: drink in the energetic, urbane vibe of revitalized Beirut; explore a diverse and beautiful landscape that lends itself easily to an unforgettable (and largely untrammeled) multi-sport adventure; marvel at archaeological wonders that are windows into the The Mount Lebanon Range includes numerous rivers that fizz with cradle of civilization; and simply enjoy the welcome of a people who snowmelt, steep-walled gullies that are naturally hospitable, friendly, and shade grottoes once the hideout to gregarious. those fleeing persecution, and also Lebanon’s highest summit, Qornet Es-Saouda (3,090m). In winter, the high peaks are blanketed with snow, lending Lebanon its name, Lubnan, the Arabic word for “white.” Lebanon boasts a number of world-class ski resorts, one of only a couple countries in the Middle East where you can ski. The ski season runs from December until April. slopes. In the coastal cities of Saida (Sidon) and Jbail (Byblos), tourists can enjoy the rare opportunity to snorkel amongst long-submerged Phoenician ruins, while excellent hiking is a mere hour away in the Chouf region of the Mount Lebanon Range.

The Mount Lebanon Range is also the location of Lebanon’s Cedar Reserves. The great cedar forests of Lebanon, now protected, are famous for their use in the construction of some of the holiest buildings in the region, indeed the world, including Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock and Solomon’s Temple.

covering an expansive time period, the museum is a “must-see.”

Al Oummawi Al Kabir Mosque Located outside the Arab walls that surround the Baalbeck temple ruins is the 7th-8th century Great Umayyad Mosque. The remains of the eastern courtyard, three rows of columns supporting arches, and an octagonal minaret can still be seen. The granite and limestone columns are believed to be from a previous Roman forum and later a Byzantine church located on the same site.

Mount Hermon: Jebel esh-Sheikh The highest peak in the Anti-Lebanon range, Mount Hermon is 2,814m high. It is an important site in the Druze religion, known as Jebel esh-Shiekh, or “mountain of the chief,” because the founder of the Druze religion retired here from Egypt in the 10th century A.D.

Yanta Roman Temple ruins are about two kilometers along the road to Yanta village. The ruins are sparse, but there are a few upright stones still in place. Going out of the village for about 1 km to the west, the road leads you to the mausoleum of the prophet Ayloun, identified by the Druze community with the prophet Elias.

Zahle Zahle is the third largest city in Lebanon and the capital of the Bekaa region. Situated at an elevation of 1,010m on the slopes of the Anti-Lebanon range, The Bardouni River flows through the town, making it a splendid location for its many open-air cafes and restaurants. You will eat and drink well in Zahle while taking in the beautiful old architecture and scenery.

Beit Ed Dine Palace Beiteddine is the name of a village in the Shouf and a beautiful 19th century palace located there. The Ottomanappointed governor, Prince Emir Bachir Chehab II, had the palace constructed over a 30 year period.

Byblos: Jbeil A thriving modern town built upon multiple layers of ruins, Byblos is a mix of sophistication and tradition. A contender for the title of “oldest continuously inhabited city,” Byblos is part of the coastal area once known as Canaan or Phoenicia. Modern scholars believe the site of Byblos dates back at least 7,000 years (5,000-4,000 BC). The city’s current name is taken from the Greek word for “papyrus” (paper). Byblos was not only a major trading center and producer of papyrus, but is also famous for being the city where Phoenician scholars created the world’s first alphabet.

Trip to Lebanon

Beirut Central District - Solidere The trendy Solidere area of downtown Beirut has been beautifully restored and is a center for family outings, cafes, shopping, and leisurely walks. The government has paid special attention to rebuilding this area since the war, and today the buildings are magnificant architectural gems, with yellow stonework, arabesque archways, and wrought-iron scrollwork. The cobblestone pedestrian streets are lined with shops selling unique traditional crafts, trendy designer fashions, jewelry, and many other things. There are over 70 restaurants and sidewalk cafes, which are popular places to spend a warm evening. At the center of Solidere is the Place dEtoile and Clock Tower, a popular area for children to ride bikes and play while their parents relax at a nearby cafe.

Al Omari Mosque (Beirut) One of the first buildings to be restored following the war by martyr Rafic Hariri, the Al Omari Mosque dates from 1291. In this year the Mamluks rested control of Beirut from the Crusaders and converted the former 12th century Crusader church (Cathedral of St. John) into the great mosque. Visitors should be appropriately attired and remove their shoes before entering. Entry is not permitted during prayer hours and not permitted at any time during the month of Ramadan.

Cathedral of St. Elias (Greek Catholic) The Greek-Catholic Cathedral of St. Elias was built in the mid-19th century and was famous for its marble iconostasis. The cathedral is awaiting renovation following wartime destruction.

National Museum of Beirut Built in 1937, the National Museum of Beirut houses antiquities and treasures from all over Lebanon, dating from prehistoric times through the Ottoman period. Located on the Green Line during the war, the museum building and some of its artifacts were severely damaged or destroyed. Following the end of the war (1991), funds were raised and restoration work took place between 1995-2000. The museum was reopened in 1999. With a rich collection
