“This is a day for all British Columbians, and all Canadians, to celebrate the unique heritage and rich cultures of aboriginal peoples and to recognize their many contributions,” says CUPE BC president Barry O’Neill.
“It’s also a lot of fun, so I encourage CUPE members everywhere to take part in Aboriginal Day activities in your community.”
The celebration has already begun in many areas of the province and in some communities—including Vancouver—will continue beyond Sunday. More information is available about the Trout Lake, Richmond and Victoria events. Check the complete list of events for what’s going on in your community.
