National Aboriginal Day
National Aboriginal Day (French: Journée nationale des Autochtones) is a day recognizing and celebrating the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples of Canada. National Aboriginal Day is an occasion for all Canadians to celebrate the rich contribution Aboriginal people have made to Canada.
On June 21st, Canadians celebrate National Aboriginal Day - a day to recognize the unique cultures and contributions of our country's First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. National Aboriginal Day itself officially started in 1996 when then Governor General, Roméo LeBlanc, proclaimed the day to be celebrated on June 21, the summer solstice.
