National Indigenous History Month is an opportunity to honour Indigenous heritage and celebrate Indigenous contributions and cultures across this land.
PIPSC President Debi Daviau, BC/Yukon Regional Director Rob MacDonald and CLC Indigenous Representative Greg Scriver will be participating in the Whitehorse APTN Indigenous Day Live event on Saturday June 22, 2019.
Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) is also hosting live events in Whitehorse, Winnipeg and Calgary.
We encourage all members to take action in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples:
- read the Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
- send a letter to your Senator supporting Bill C-262, An Act to ensure that the laws of Canada are in harmony with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
- learn about the efforts of the Canadian labour movement to work as allies to Indigenous people
- educate yourself on Canada’s history and how to become an ally.
