For more than 18 years, Enbridge Gas Distribution has proudly sponsored Winterlude, an annual winter festival in Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec.

On February 4th, 2017, our 13th annual pancake breakfast was held at the Marion Dewar Plaza in Ottawa's City Hall. All members of the community were invited to enjoy this warm breakfast before they kicked off their day of winter activities. In previous years, we have served more than 9,000 pancakes, 340 litres of hot chocolate and 48 litres of maple syrup during this two-hour event!

This annual tradition is one of the many ways we support the communities we serve. Our employees had a fantastic time serving food and hot chocolate, and the breakfast was one of the year’s highlights for our Community Events team. There were many exciting events that took place this year at Winterlude and we hope that everyone enjoyed it. 

On February 11th and 18th, we hosted the  ‘Enbridge Cabin’. On those evenings, 18 members of the community were invited to come and enjoy free treats while they attended one of Winterlude’s outdoor dance parties in Confederation Park.

We have a long and proud history in Ottawa. We’ve been delivering safe, clean and affordable natural gas and supporting the community for more than 165 years. Winterlude is one of the many events and organizations that we are proud to support.

By supporting the organizations and sponsoring activities that contribute to the economic, environmental and social well-being of the communities we serve, we’re helping build healthy, vibrant and sustainable communities.
