Christmas Lights Across Canada

Christmas Lights Across Canada

December 8, 2021 - January 7, 2022

Before and during the holiday season each year, thousands of colourful lights illuminate buildings, parks and streetscapes in Ottawa.

Each evening from early December to early January, the Christmas Lights Across Canada event presents hundreds of thousands of dazzling holiday lights throughout downtown Ottawa-Gatineau, as well as a free multimedia show on Parliament Hill. 

The Pathway of lights in Canada's Capital Region brightens Confederation Boulevard, Canada’s ceremonial route which encompasses Wellington Street, Mackenzie Street and Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa, Laurier Street in Gatineau, as well as connecting bridges. Historic sites and parks along the way are also decorated.

Stop at Parliament Hill to see the free multimedia projection show which features captivating digital imagery and sound. This winter-themed show is presented on a 15-minute loop.
