Gov. Gen. Mary Simon says Canadians should work together to build an inclusive society in her official message to the nation to mark Canada Day.

She says Canadians should be kind to each other, learn from one another and listen to Indigenous Peoples, on whose land we live.

Simon is Canada’s first Indigenous Governor General and was known for her Inuit advocacy work before being appointed to the role.

She says on Canada Day, Canadians should remember to keep working together and commit to a country where everyone truly belongs.

She adds Canadians should also have hope for the future and faith in their neighbours and friends.
