National Indigenous Peoples Day

On June 21, we acknowledge the ongoing, fierce advocacy of Indigenous CUPE members and Indigenous people across the country. As part of Canada’s largest union, we acknowledge that it is more important than ever to respect the rights of Indigenous peoples to their unceded territories, as well as to preserve and protect their cultures and languages.

CUPE stands in solidarity with Indigenous nations, communities and organizations and is committed to continuing to work towards reconciliation, and to respect our ongoing treaty relationships.

For resources and actions to learn and to reflect on the ongoing harm caused by colonialism and Canada’s treatment of Indigenous people see CUPE National’s guide.
