National Indigenous Peoples Day and History Month is a time to celebrate the diverse histories, languages and cultures of Indigenous Peoples that enrich our province.
In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day, now known as National Indigenous Peoples Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.
