June is National Indigenous Peoples Month
National Indigenous Peoples Month is June 1 - 30 

Every June, Canadians are invited to celebrate the contributions of Indigenous peoples in Canada. The City of Chestermere is located on Treaty 7 Blackfoot land and residents on this territory are encouraged to learn Canada’s true history and participate in reconciliation through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action. 

Join us in celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Month from June 1 - 30 and Indigenous Awareness Day on June 21. You can also read the Council Proclamation for Chestermere Indigenous Awareness Week that will be held June 21 - 27.  



 


June is Pride Monthcelebrating pride

Happy Pride Month, Chestermere!  

Chestermere welcomes people of all sexual orientations, gender expressions and identities to share in this celebration. Together we celebrate our humanity in all its diversity. In acknowledging our diversity in sexuality and gender, we must also acknowledge our human connection. We all have the same human needs, the need to feel valued, accepted, safe and loved.

Pride Month is from June 1 - 30. Check out the full Council Proclamation for Pride Month here.
