From Sept. 1 to 7, chefs and restaurants will whip up cheesy and delicious burgers across Canada with proceeds of select dishes going to support Centraide and United Way.

Le Cheeseburger Week was created in 2013 by two Montreal-based entrepreneurs Na’eem Adams and Thierry Rassam. The pair wanted to create a fun and exciting way for burger lovers to interact and support their favorite restaurants while also giving restaurants a chance to broaden their public image by participating in the event.

“Le Burger Week began as a fun local food project to celebrate our city’s (Montreal) love for burgers. Over the years, we have grown into a national festival that continuously helps to stimulate businesses across the nation,” said Adam in a press release.

And while there are only a select number of participating restaurants on the Lower Mainland, more establishments are able to register at leburgerweek.com/registration/restaurant.
