National Aboriginal Day
Today, June 21st, join thousands of Canadians across the country as we celebrate National Aboriginal Day. This is a special day to celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.
Former Governor General Romeo LeBlanc first proclaimed the day in 1996. It is held on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the first day of summer. The summer solstice is the day on which many aboriginal communities celebrate their cultural and spiritual beliefs.
