Toronto Zoo Events Calendar

National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21 & 22, 2021

As we honour National Indigenous History Month here at your Toronto Zoo, we acknowledge the land we are on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Williams Treaty signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

Tune in to the Zoo’s Facebook page throughout the month of June to hear a weekly Indigenous storytelling from our First Nations Steward, Taylor. Plus, check out the Zoo’s Turtle Island Conservation resources on our website at, free year-round!

On June 21 and June 22, we are inviting the Indigenous members of our community to come to your Toronto Zoo* and will be offering complimentary admission with the presentation of a status card, Metis card, or an Inuit Health Branch Client Identification Number (N-Number) upon entry. Please note, all tickets must be booked in advance online through the Zoo’s website.
