Former Governor General Roméo A. LeBlanc proclaimed June 21st as National Aboriginal Day in 1996.

This day was chosen because of the cultural significance of the summer solstice (first day of summer and longest day of the year) and because many Aboriginal groups mark this day as a time to celebrate their heritage. Setting aside a day for Aboriginal Peoples is part of the wider recognition of Aboriginal Peoples important place within the fabric of Canada and their ongoing contributions as First Peoples. Each year thousands of Canadians across the country celebrate the unique heritage, cultures, and contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people.

Aboriginal Day was possible thanks to the donations and support of these sponsors.
