Have a Heart Day on Parliament Hill

Have a Heart Day is a child and youth-led reconciliation campaign to help that ensure First Nations children get a fair chance to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and feel proud of who they are. Each year, schools from Ottawa, Gatineau and beyond gather on Parliament Hill to read letters and poems, sing songs, and stand together for love and fairness. 

Have a Heart Day 2020 will not be held on Parliament Hill due to construction. A separate event will be held for schools from the Ottawa-Gatineau area. Please email info@fncaringsociety.com for more information.

We encourage people to continue to celebrate Have a Heart Day in their classrooms, places of work and homes. You may register your Have a Heart Day celebration at fncaringsociety.com/sign-up-have-a-heart.
