National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day – a time to celebrate the history, heritage, diversity and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.

We acknowledge with gratitude and respect that the City of Coquitlam is located on the shared, traditional and ancestral lands of the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), sq̓əc̓iy̓aɁɬ təməxʷ (Katzie), and other Coast Salish Peoples.  

On this day we encourage you to learn more about, advocate for and reconcile with Indigenous Peoples.
