About Wabano Fine Chocolates
Wabano Fine Chocolates is a charming chocolate factory tucked away in the heart of Vanier and is led by Pierrette Vezina, a Métis chocolatier. Aside from producing decadent sweet treats, Wabano’s chocolate business has become an integral resource for Indigenous communities throughout Ottawa. A portion of every order goes towards the programming at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, which is an invaluable support network offering a multitude of services for Aboriginal individuals. Each chocolate is made with love and Indigenous culture in mind and comes in a variety of different flavours and shapes such as canoes, bears, feathers, beavers and turtles. They also include an Indigenous teaching in every piece, making them uniquely delicious and meaningful.
