Fair Vote Canada recognizes First Nations, Inuit and Métis people across the country as we offer our solidarity on this important day. Injustices and harms perpetuated by settlers on Indigenous Peoples are an ongoing reality with long-lasting impacts. Indigenous people are entitled to a framework for reconciliation and a path towards closing the gap in the quality of life between First Nations and Canada.
#NationalIndigenousPeoplesDay is a celebration of Indigenous cultures and an important reminder of the tremendous work that remains to be done on reconciliation. Fair Vote Canada supports the implementation of the Calls for Action made by the Truth & Reconciliation Commission.
For those who would like to educate themselves by participating in events today, here is a partial list.
