National Indigenous Day of Prayer is June 21, 2024.

Established in 1971, this is a time to commemorate and honour the history, contributions, and diversity of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples in Canada. The summer solstice, recognized as National Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada, will be celebrated on June 21, 2024.

We encourage you to connect with Indigenous neighbours, explore Indigenous history, and experience the beauty of Indigenous cultures and traditions. Participate with respect in Indigenous-led spaces in June and beyond. Consider joining local gatherings, which offer rich opportunities to learn.

The General Synod established the National Indigenous Day of Prayer on June 21 in the Calendar of the Anglican Church of Canada, under the heading “Other Major Feasts that take Precedence of a Sunday”, as found in the Book of Alternative Services.
