Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day!

Wishing everyone a Happy Canada Day to share with your friends, family, and your Community. It will be a time of reflection on what we have achieved as a Country and on what more we have to do.

The Canadian Indigenous Flag was designed by Kwakwaka’wakw artist Curtis Wilson.  His design for the flag is meant to represent First Nations in Canada to the public. We hope this Indigenous Peoples flag brings a better understanding of the First Nations of Canada and a vision for a unified Canada that still revels in its diversity and history rooted by the Indigenous Peoples and First Nations Tribes.
