JUNE 21 IS NATIONAL INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

21 June 2022

On the first day of summer, June 21, we celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day. It's an opportunity to honour the rich cultures and contributions of Indigenous, Métis and Inuit Peoples.

For centuries, the first inhabitants would celebrate the arrival of the warm weather and the pleasures of the summer solstice – the day of the year with the longest light.

Whether you are starting or continuing your learning journey, we encourage you to get involved and observe National Indigenous Peoples Day.

How to Celebrate on June 21

National Indigenous Peoples Day is for all Canadians. Share in the celebration!
