It’s a chance to be proud of our diversity, inclusivity and multiculturalism, and acknowledge the rights and responsibilities we all share as Canadian citizens. A vital part of being Canadian is understanding the history and reality of Indigenous Peoples and their integral role in this country’s past, present and future,”he added.
