Recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day 2023

On June 21, CLBC joins people in communities across the province and country in recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day. This day celebrates the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of Inuit, Métis, and First Nations peoples.

Learn more about National Indigenous Peoples Day here as well as National Indigenous History Month, which is recognized during the month of June.

This year has seen important steps in CLBC’s work to advance reconciliation and build trusting relationships with Indigenous communities.

In May, the Community Living Authority Act, which governs CLBC, was amended to formally include an Indigenous Advisory Committee, and to require CLBC’s Board of Directors continue to include at least one Indigenous person.

Earlier this month, an official CLBC Board Statement of Commitment on Advancing Reconciliation was signed at an historic and emotional ceremony in Richmond.

CLBC values the ongoing contributions and guidance of the Indigenous Advisory Committee and Indigenous Relations team who support us in our goal of improving services for Indigenous Peoples and communities.

Please join us in recognizing this important day.
