Happy Canada Day!
If you’re in Canmore, check out Canada Day in Canmore, if you’re in Cochrane, check out Canada Day and if you’re in Banff, please visit their site to learn more. All three communities are choosing to celebrate in different fashions given COVID-19 and the discovery of more and more unmarked burial sites at former Indian Residential Schools.
We further wish acknowledge that we are on territory known as Treaty 7, which is a treaty signed on behalf of Queen Victoria in 1877, with the Stoney Nakoda (Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley), Blackfoot Confederacy (Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika), and Tsuut’ina Nations.
No matter how you choose to celebrate, please stay safe and have a great summer.
