Back to School Picnic 2020

In response to the ongoing concerns of COVID-19 in our communities and the provincial health recommendations around in-person gatherings, the 2020 Aboriginal Back to School Picnic will look different than it has in previous years. In order to keep everyone healthy and safe, there will be no picnic for any of the Aboriginal Back to School Picnic Events planned throughout the province. Backpacks of supplies will still be available!!


All 2020 Picnic Registrations are now closed. Late Registration may be available closer to picnic dates. For further information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will miss hosting an event this year, and hope everyone has a fun and safe summer! When our children go back to school, our hearts go with them.

Update August 24, 2020

Due to unforeseen shipping delays with this year’s supplies, the pickup dates for Aboriginal Back to School Picnic have been postponed. For those families who have registered for this year’s event, backpacks and supplies will now be available for pick up on September 1st, 2020 from 9 – 2 p.m. Please check your emails - you will be notified shortly with the pickup location you will visit on September 1st.

We apologize wholeheartedly for the inconvenience this may have caused for you and your family. We thank you for your ongoing patience as we do our best to work through these unforeseen circumstances.
