On February 14, 2017, join children and young people from schools across the National Capital Region for a gathering on Parliament Hill to celebrate Have a Heart Day!

Have a Heart Day is a child and youth-led reconciliation campaign that brings together caring Canadians to help ensure First Nations children have the services they need to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and be proud of who they are.

The Ottawa celebration will be supported by Have a Heart Day celebrations in schools and communities across the country. 

There are many ways you can celebrate Have a Heart Day. Here are some ideas:  

·         Send a Valentine’s Day card or letter supporting Have a Heart Day to the Prime Minister and your Member of Parliament.

  • Host a Valentine’s Day party to raise awareness in your school or community. Choose a day leading up to Valentine's Day that makes sense for your class or community. 
  • Spread the word through social media like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. Use the hashtag #HaveaHeartDay.

Through activities like Have a Heart Day, we are creating a movement where the landscape of Canada is only one of honour and possibility for First Nations children.
