The Canadian Coast Guard College celebrated Treaty Day, held annually on October 1st.

The purpose of Treaty Day is to promote public awareness about the Mi’kmaw culture and heritage for all citizens of Nova Scotia. In 1985, the Supreme Court of Canada confirmed the validity of the Treaty of 1752.

This is the 26th year that  Treaty Day has commemorated the unique and special relationship that exists between the Mi’kmaq and her Majesty.
