NATIONAL INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY
We recognize June 21 as National Indigenous Peoples Day. It is a day to celebrate and honour Indigenous heritage, diversity, and cultures, as well as the outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples throughout Canada. Since time immemorial, June 21, or the Summer Solstice, has been celebrated and honoured in Indigenous communities as the longest day of the year. In 1996, while working with Indigenous communities, the Government of Canada officially recognized June 21 as National Indigenous Peoples Day.
