City of Brampton honours National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day

BRAMPTON, ON  – June is National Indigenous History Month and June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day, a time to learn about the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

The City of Brampton continues to develop and implement a reconciliation action plan in partnership with Host Nations and urban Indigenous communities. This work is guided by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and the Calls to Justice​ from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls’ final report.

On June 21, the summer solstice welcomes National Indigenous Peoples Day.
