June 21st, 2017 world-turtle

Crowe MacKay would like wish everyone a Happy National Aboriginal Day 2017. We have been experts in full service accounting solutions for Aboriginal Communities for over 40 years and are proud to celebrate this wonderful occasion! Building lasting relationships is important to us and it starts with recognizing the history, culture, and traditions of the Aboriginal community.

“This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous Peoples. Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.” (taken from
