First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples have rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories. National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day represent opportunities for all of us to reflect upon, learn about and celebrate the many accomplishments of Indigenous peoples.

This National Indigenous History Month we encourage you to learn something new about First Nations, Inuit and Métis history, and on June 21, National Indigenous Peoples Day, please join us in celebrating and honouring Indigenous Peoples.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families and community members of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation as they grieve the loss of the 215 children who never made it home from the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

We are heartbroken as we stand alongside the many families and community members impacted by this tragedy and the legacy of residential schools.
