The Egyptian community in Ontario on Friday evening, celebrated the lighting of the CN Tower – the tallest building in Canada – in the Egyptian flag colors to mark the launch of the Egyptian Heritage Month.
Dozens of Egyptians gathered in the streets near the famous building in Toronto to celebrate the event, which was organized by the Canadian Egyptian Heritage Association (CEHA). The Egyptian Canadians were seen in limited groups to follow the instructions of the Canadian authorities due to the pandemic.
The CN Tower is an important icon of Toronto and has more than two million tourists and visitors every year. It has been one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World since 1995.
The tower is one of the most prominent and tallest towers in the world, with a height of 550 meters. It was completed in 1973 and was the tallest tower in the world until the construction of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2009.
The celebration of the Egyptian Heritage Month in Ontario began in July 2019, after MPP Sheref El Sabawy, with the support of the Egyptian community in Canada, submitted Bill 106 to Parliament, which voted on it to become a law, and part of the constitution.
The Canadian Egyptian Heritage Association in Canada said that celebrations for the Egyptian civilization and heritage month include broadcasting events and exclusive meetings for symbols of art, literature, and culture in Egypt on Saturday and Sunday of every week throughout July in addition to inviting all Egyptian NGOs in Canada to participate.
It added that about 30 Egyptian institutions in Canada have announced their readiness to participate.
