National Indigenous People’s Day

Today is National Indigenous People’s Day, which falls June 21st, the summer solstice. This day is meant to recognize and honour First Nations, Inuit and Métis cultures.

This date was chosen to reflect the spiritual importance of the summer solstice to all of the indigenous peoples of Canada.

Today and every day, we encourage you to celebrate the rich history, multifaceted culture and inspiring individuals of the Indigenous community. We encourage you to take time to reflect, learn, research and take part in events near you.

It is a day for difficult reflection, but also for immense joy. Let us set intentions for a brighter, more equitable future for all.
