Here in the NWT we may look forward more than anywhere else in Canada to National Aboriginal Day on June 21. That’s because this is the only place in Canada where it’s a statutory holiday.
Aboriginal Day is more than just a chance to enjoy the summer solstice. I hope you will get out and participate in the wonderful community activities planned across the NWT. Take advantage of the opportunity to celebrate Indigenous Canadians and their contributions to the fabric of your community and country.
