Wabano Holiday Gift Basket

Wabano Holiday Gift Basket


These handmade artisan chocolates are made by the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health in Ottawa. Led by Pierrette Vezina, a chocolatier and Wabano Centre volunteer, Wabano Fine Chocolates was started. This Indigenous chocolate-making social enterprise is the first of its kind in Canada.

Wabano Fine Chocolates project also helps train volunteers in the art of chocolate making and sells chocolate to raise money to support its Indigenous programs. What once started as a small project to make gifts is now a tale of a group of chocolatiers sharing their Aboriginal culture through delicious handmade chocolate.

The Wabano Fine Chocolates collection includes:

  • 2 bears
  • canoe
  • turtle
  • feathers
  • box of four artisan chocolates
  • box of chocolate bark (to die for)
  • 1 chocolate bar
