National Aboriginal Day is held annually on June 21st. This date was chosen by the Canadian government in cooperation with Aboriginal organizations because it was on or near the June solstice, traditionally a time when many generations of Aboriginal people have celebrated their culture and heritage.
This is a day when we can all join in recognizing the unique heritage, culture and outstanding achievements of our nation’s Aboriginal people.
In light of National Aboriginal Day, Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario recommit to support and collaborate with our Aboriginal communities in bettering the health, well-being and life chance of Aboriginal children in Ontario.
Highland Shores Children’s Aid has a strong and collaborative working relationship with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte and Alderville First Nation which includes Memos of Understanding as well appointees to the Society’s Board of Directors. We continue to work with these partners to ensure the best possible care for aboriginal children.
