National Aboriginal Day - June 21, 2017
National Aboriginal Day - June 21, 2017
This is a day where all Canadians can celebrate the contributions Aboriginal 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 Aboriginal 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 Aboriginal Day was proclaimed in 1996 by former Governor General Romeo A. LeBlanc.
 
For more information about the day's activities, visit the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada website and look in the All Topics > Aboriginal arts, culture and heritage page. Additional resources on First Nation, Metis, Inuit can be found on the Ontario Ministry of Education website.
