June is National Aboriginal History Month in Ontario to “recognize the enormous contribution that First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples have made to Canada.”

Also, June 21 is National Aboriginal Day:

  • June 21st was chosen as National Aboriginal Day because it is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year
  • Aboriginal peoples in Canada have celebrated their diverse cultures, heritage, and outstanding achievements on or near this day
    • There are three distinct groups of Aboriginal Peoples in Ontario: First Nations, Inuit and Métis

    • Ontario is home to more than 300,000 Aboriginal people

      • Over half live in towns and cities across the province
