National Indigenous Peoples Day is a celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ culture and heritage.

National Indigenous Peoples Day is an opportunity to become better acquainted with the cultural diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, discover the unique accomplishments of Indigenous Peoples in fields as varied as agriculture, the environment and the arts, and celebrate their significant contribution to Canadian society.
