A federal-provincial-territorial agreement will be honoured on Canada Day 2019, a day of celebration and respect for the First Nations people of Manitoba.
The agreement, which was signed last week between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger, will see a ceremony in Winnipeg to honour the legacy of the First Nation.
“The Manitoba government and the federal government have committed to honouring the First Canadian Treaty and the rights of First Nations to a day to celebrate their history and culture in peace,” said Manitoba Premier Gregory Selinger in a statement.
“Today marks the beginning of a new era in our relationship with Canada.”
The ceremony will be held at the Manitoba Legislature in Winnipeg, the provincial capital of Manitoba, and will be broadcast live on CBC Radio One.
The ceremony, which will be attended by Premier Greg Clark, the Manitoba government’s Minister of Aboriginal and Northern Affairs, Chief John Duncan and the Chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, will honour the history of First Nation people who have worked to create and protect a way of life and culture for themselves, their children, and future generations.
“This is a very important day for the Manitobans,” said Selinger.
“They will be celebrating their history, and that will be the best way to honour and honour their relationship with First Nations.”
