Happy Canada Day!

CUPE Nova Scotia is pleased to wish a Happy Canada Day to our members, families and communities! Canadians have much to celebrate and be proud of today. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful and diverse country, one that provides us with access to freedoms and opportunities that are sadly unavailable to many others around the globe. However, it is important to acknowledge that our past also has many dark chapters. Canada’s Indigenous peoples have suffered immeasurably from the cruelty and inhumanity of colonialism. We therefore encourage you to reflect on this as you celebrate today, and to promote the principles of reconciliation every day.
