National Indigenous Peoples Day

National Indigenous Peoples Day
Posted on 06/21/2022

Each year, National Indigenous Peoples Day is recognized on June 21st. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. 

The acknowledgement of National Indigenous Peoples Day / the Original people of Turtle Island dates back thousands of years. This day invites us to reflect on our shared history - the past, present and future in the spirit of truth and reconciliation.


June 21st also serves as the official launch of Celebrate Canada Days:


  • June 21st (National Indigenous Peoples Day)

  • June 24th (Sainte-Jean-Baptiste Day)

  • June 27th (Canadian Multicultural Day)

  • July 1st (Canada Day)

  • August 15th (National Acadian Day)

We would like to share a video from CBC News of our national anthem being sung in 11 languages, including those Indigenous to Canada and a Ukrainian / children's choir.
