TORONTO – CESO (Canadian Executive Service Organization) would like to recognize and celebrate the history, diversity and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people on National Aboriginal Day, June 21st.
On this day, CESO encourages all Canadians to participate in National Aboriginal Day celebrations across the country and to learn more about the important contributions Aboriginal peoples have to Canada’s economy and history.
National Aboriginal Day was established to recognize the unique heritage and contributions of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples. In 1982, the National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations, a CESO partner) called for the creation of a National Aboriginal Solidarity Day to be celebrated on the day of the summer solstice- June 21st – a time of significance for many Aboriginal people.
Since 1969, CESO has worked with Aboriginal communities, collaborating on more than 30,000 assignments across Canada to assist individuals, small and medium-sized businesses, and community organizations to develop the skills needed to support long-term economic development, good governance, strong community health infrastructure, and sound financial management. CESO is a registered charitable organization with no political or religious affiliation.
