Heritage Day 2017

Saturday, February 18, 2017

On Monday, 20th February 2017, Nova Scotians will mark Heritage Day.   As part of the Canada 150 celebrations, Heritage Day 2017 will honour Mi’kmaq heritage, culture and the many accomplishments of the Mi’kmaq people.  

We honour the Mi’kmaq people for their historic and continuing role in Nova Scotia.  The Mi’kmaq people and their rich culture are a vital part of what makes Nova Scotia a wonderful place to live and visit.

During his time as Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, His Honour Brigadier-General The Honourable J.J. Grant, accompanied by Her Honour Mrs. Joan Grant, have been honoured and proud to host and participate in many Mi’kmaq events.
