Did you know that Canada History Week is from November 18-24 this year? The Department of Canadian Heritage conceived Canada History Week with the goal to provide “all Canadians with opportunities to learn more about the people and events that have shaped the great country that we know today.”
Canadian food as we know it today is a diverse mix of culinary treats. Just like our country’s population, influences have come together from far and wide to create something unique.
Though all of June is National Indigenous History Month, National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21st kicks off festivals and events in Canada that last throughout the summer. But even if you don’t get to attend any of these, there are many places-of-interest open to visitors nearly year-round.
June is when we celebrate National Indigenous History Month, a time for us to reflect on the ways that First Nations, Inuit and Métis cultures have shaped our collective Canadian culture and identity over our shared history.
