Royal Assent has been given to the recently-passed National Aboriginal Day Act of Canada's Northwest Territories, meaning that, as of next year, National Aboriginal Day will be a statutory non-working public holiday in the Canada's Northwest Territories.
Former Governor General Romeo LeBlanc had declared June 21st as National Aboriginal Day, after consulting with various Aboriginal groups, in 1996, as a non-statutory holiday.
