CTN Celebrates National Indigenous History Month

news image

This month is a time to acknowledge National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day which is recognized on the first day of the summer solstice, June 21st.

Did you know there are three unique Indigenous groups in Canada? The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples. The month of June is an opportunity to learn and unlearn about the histories, sacrifices, contributions and excellence of Indigenous peoples.  
Throughout the year, CTN has been celebrating our collaboration with Dnaagdawenmag Binnoojiiyag Child & Family Services, a multi-service Indigenous Child Well-Being Agency that provides wraparound services that are culturally-based and family-focused. CTN will continue to focus on the importance of promoting reconciliation, inspiring action and working together with our network partners to remove systemic barriers faced by the Indigenous children, youth and families we serve.

Creating a brighter future together relies on understanding our past. To learn more, please check out the resources below.
