An invitation from our Aboriginal Council

Boozhoo, Sago, Aanii:

Happy Aboriginal Day. We ask the Creator to bring you all together with your friends and families.

We hope that everyone will join together with the Aboriginal communities in Ontario for a Day of Celebration, Learning and Fun. It is a day when we can share our traditions and our teachings and we want all to join us.

We hope that everyone has a beautiful day and remembers that all people should be treated equally.

To all your relations,

CUPE Ontario
