Law Society recognizes National Aboriginal History Month 2017
June is National Aboriginal History Month in Canada. This month of national celebration provides an opportunity to learn about and honour Indigenous histories, heritage and cultures. It is also a time to rededicate ourselves to building renewed relationships, based on mutual understanding and respect, with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities, as we are called to do by the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
In the spirit of National Aboriginal History Month, the Law Society encourages you to get out and get involved in the many community events happening around the province throughout the month of June, including gatherings on June 21, which is recognized across the country as National Aboriginal Day.

In recognition and respect for National Aboriginal History Month and National Aboriginal Day 2017, the Law Society is supporting a number of Indigenous community events and initiatives throughout the province.
The Law Society has also produced a number of educational events to help raise awareness and promote discussion within the legal professions about the experiences of, and challenges and opportunities faced by Indigenous communities.
