Canada Day 2021: A time to reflect

The past year has been emotional for many of us and has sparked at times difficult conversations. Many have experienced Canada Day with conflicting feelings: on the one hand, pride in being Canadian and what we represent as a nation, and, on the other, the pain and shame of darker episodes of our history, the repercussions of which are still felt today.

Canada remains committed to supporting survivors, their families and communities through their healing journeys. Canadians have made it clear that they stand with Indigenous communities across the country in this time of grief. Together, let's keep this momentum of solidarity going and continue learning from each other with open hearts and minds. Let us learn from our past and take the common path of reconciliation, so that we can build a better future together.
