National Indigenous Peoples Day - June 21, 2018
National Indigenous Peoples Day - June 21, 2018
This is a day where all Canadians can celebrate the contributions Indigenous peoples have made to Canada.

This day was chosen because it is also the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. For generations, many Indigenous people have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day.
  
First Nations people created First Nations Day in 1982, a day of celebration that is seen by many to be an alternative to Victoria Day. National Indigenous Peoples Day was proclaimed in 1996 by former Governor General Romeo A. LeBlanc.
 
For more information about the day's activities, visit the Indigenous Affairs and Northern Development Canada website and look in the All Topics > Indigenous arts, culture and heritage page. Additional resources on First Nation, Metis, Inuit can be found on the Ontario Ministry of Education website.
