National Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated on June 21st each year. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding
contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. Today and all days, we honor, respect,
appreciate and value the countless contributions of First Nation, Inuit and Métis People across
Canada, and we commit to learn and grow from events of the past. The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program is committed to reconciliation, and committed to be a program that is inclusive and culturally safe for all participants. We encourage Parent-Child Mother Goose programs to begin their sessions with a land acknowledgement,
to give thanks and honour the traditional territories of the Indigenous Peoples.

If you pause for a moment and focus, perhaps you can smell the scent of budding blooms, rainfall, and new growth – we are officially into SPRING! We are pleased to present our SPRING 2022 P-CMGP Newsletter.
In this issue of our P-CMGP Newsletter, we showcase Infant Virtual Programming in Timiskaming Shores, Ontario. Nathalie Bowen describes the virtual program, and the success of transitioning back to in-person programming. “Even with our masks on, they recognized our voices from us singing online with them.” In this edition, you’ll also meet Papa Goose, and hear from Parents and Grandparents across Canada.
Our newsletters are a great resource for new material. You’ll find National Council news and updates, projects we’re working on, and how you can help us. As always, you’ll find new songs, rhymes and stories.
We love hearing from you! Connect with Ivanka at to share your stories, rhymes, pictures and news. Tell us about your program – sharing your stories brings joy, strengthens the network, and creates energy across Canada and across the world.
