Reconciliate and Celebrate: National Indigenous People’s Day

Canada celebrates National Indigenous People’s Day on June 21 every year. It is a time for reflection, remembering and reconciliation. While this may be a relatively new holiday for our country, it is a very important one as we travel the road to reconciling our past actions and behaviours towards the first peoples of this land. It is also a great opportunity for Canadians, young and old to listen and learn about the cultures, and contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. It's also an opportunity to reflect on how we can advance reconciliation at work.
