CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF NATIONAL INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY
21 June 2021
On June 21, 2021, we honour 25 years of celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day.
We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work, play and learn on Indigenous territory and honour the Indigenous peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
If you are an Indigenous person and interested in exploring career opportunities, we invite you to visit the Resources for Indigenous People section. You will find information on how to pursue post-secondary education, get funding for your education, gain work experience and job skills, and create or expand your own business.
Check out BC's Career Guide for Indigenous People (PDF) or order a hardcopy (free shipping in B.C.). The guide will support your career planning journey, from early exploration to success on the job.
Speaking of success, watch this video of Denise Williams, Clothing Designer, Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, Nuu-Chah-nulth. Have a look at other success stories and videos too.
How ever you choose to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, we join with you and raise our hands in gratitude.
