WHO WE ARE: The Ottawa Aboriginal Parade Committee is a grassroots committee with the goal to promote cultural awareness of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples by hosting an annual parade/procession in conjunction with National Aboriginal Day/National Indigenous People’s Day in downtown Ottawa. “It’s a wonderful idea and hopefully many will support this event! “ ~ Julie Vachon

WHAT IS NAD: In 1996 former Governor General Romeo LeBlanc declared June 21st as National Aboriginal Day, a day for all Canadians to celebrate the unique and diverse cultures of the First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. In 2017 Indigenous and Northern Affairs requested June 21st to be renamed National Indigenous People’s Day.
