National Aboriginal Day - June 21 - was declared by the Government of Canada in 1996 to celebrate the contribution of Aboriginal peoples to Canadian society as Canada’s first peoples and to recognize their different cultures.

Flags to be raised include those of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Métis Nation, and Nunavut, the first aboriginal Territory in Canada. For information on National Aboriginal Day events visit http://www.toronto.ca/diversity and click on the link to National Aboriginal Day.
