Embrace being Canadian by indulging in one of our nation’s favourites—the hot and salty poutine. La Poutine Week is set to return for the first week of February, so get your stretchy pants ready.

The annual week-long festival is expanding to two weeks for 2022 providing ample time for foodies across Canada to go and try some of their city’s top poutine offerings and then vote for their favourite online.

This year, 44 restaurants from across B.C. will be taking part in the annual event.

Of course due to the rises in cases, participants are being encouraged to try the dishes via take-out or delivery whenever possible.

Get your fill of cheese curds when the festival is on from Feb. 1st to the 14th.
