National Indigenous Peoples Day
June 21, 2018
National Indigenous Peoples Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
The IESO is committed to working with Indigenous Peoples to drive meaningful change for long-term economic, environmental and social well-being of communities and their residents. In recent months, the IESO has engaged extensively with Indigenous communities across the province to shape a recently launched, enhanced suite of energy support programs and to refine conservation programs to better align with community-identified needs and priorities.
