mark National Aboriginal Day.

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.

The City of Toronto will recognize National Aboriginal Day with a sunrise
ceremony to be followed by a flag raising. 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.
