Abaka (Ապագայ in Armenian) is an Armenian Canadian trilingual newspaper established in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1975. It is the official political organ of the Armenian Democratic Liberal Party (Ramgavar party). Since 2010 however, it has been reflecting the views of the splinter Armenakan-Democratic Liberal Party.

Abaka is published weekly in Armenian in 16 pages tabloid, 12 being in Armenian, with a 4-page additional supplement in the middle (two pages in French and 2 pages English).

The newspaper also publishes a children/teens monthly supplement called "Pountch" as an insert.

On the 40th anniversary of its establishment, Abaka announced launching of its trilingual online edition on site
