June Activities are Coming in Hot for Summer

Our friends at ToDoOntario have created a “go-to guide” for things to see and do on Father’s Day, and throughout National Indigenous Peoples’ Month.

June 8, 2024 – We’re kicking off the month of June in celebration of Dads, and Canada’s Indigenous Peoples.

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18, 2024 – what better way to celebrate your Dad than through a unique experience that you can enjoy together?

For a night, for a weekend, for a whole week, take Dad to recharge his batteries on an Ontario family fishing trip.
In the treetops or on a zip line are a great way to have fun and make memories with Dad. Ontario has some pretty cool canopy tours and activities that will have your dad feeling like a kid again.

From sharing a meal to spending the day on the water to enjoying a spa, check out the possibilities in Ontario for that much needed ‘Dad-time’ – follow this link to the ToDoOntario website: https://todoontario.com/fathers-day-gift-ideas-for-ontario-dads/

National Indigenous MonthNational Indigenous Peoples Day & Month

Every June brings the opportunity to honour Canada’s rich history with National Indigenous Peoples Day on Friday, June 21. First established as a national holiday in 1996, the day encourages Canadians to honour and celebrate the legacy and culture of Indigenous groups.

“Honouring Indigenous Peoples Day respectfully is educating yourself about Indigenous history and culture. We all have a part in reconciling Canada’s past.” says Jeanine Jankowski, owner of ToDoOntario, “Staying educated can minimize misinformation surrounding Indigenous culture and keep misconceptions from being passed down to future generations.”

If you’re a non-Indigenous person who would like to participate in the Indigenous Peoples Day celebration, it’s important to maintain a level of respect.

Respectfully observing the holiday largely means keeping the focus on Indigenous culture and history. There are numerous ways to celebrate, which can include anything from eating traditional foods to attending a pow wow, visiting an art gallery and more.
