On Wednesday, June 21, 2017, join the gathering and celebrate Aboriginal cultures with Aboriginal Peoples Television Network’s Aboriginal Day Live across Canada!

This year marks the largest celebration of National Aboriginal Day in Canada’s history, as we host celebration in eight cities across the country: Halifax, Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Yellowknife, Edmonton and Vancouver.

All Canadians are invited to join us – for free day celebrations and activities as well as a live concert – on location in our host cities, via a live 7-hour TV broadcast, via participating radio stations and online.

History of Aboriginal Day Live (ADL)

ADL has been delighting audiences since 2007. This event features some of the biggest names in Aboriginal music and television, including JUNO Award winners and on-the-rise artists. It showcases talent from all genres, regions and nations, ensuring the recognition and inclusion of all First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.

ADL debuted in a park outside the network’s headquarters in downtown Winnipeg and then moved to the historical Forks site in Winnipeg, MB. The celebration evolved to include twin stage performances from different locations across the county, including Yellowknife, Whitehorse, Ottawa, Regina, Iqaluit, Halifax and Edmonton. ADL has grown year to year and continues to expand its grassroots reach to Aboriginal communities across the country.

What is National Aboriginal Day?

National Aboriginal Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding achievements and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples. It was first celebrated on June 21, 1996, after being recognized through a proclamation by then Governor General Roméo LeBlanc. National Aboriginal Day is part of the Celebrate Canada program, though most provinces do not recognize it as a statutory holiday.
