Proclamation Declaring June 21 of Each Year as National Aboriginal Day

National Aboriginal Day: Celebrating 20 years

On June 21, the summer solstice, National Aboriginal Day is celebrated in Canada. This day of recognition and celebration was established, in cooperation with Indigenous organizations, to honour the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. While these three groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.
