Land Acknowledgement

In the spirit of reconciliation, we wish to acknowledge the enduring relationship between Indigenous Peoples and the territories they traditionally occupied. We recognize and deeply appreciate the historic connection they have to this place both the land and the water. We are grateful for the opportunity to meet here and we thank all the generations of Indigenous Peoples who have taken care of this place and continue to care for it and we want to show our respect. Hundreds of years after the first treaties were signed, they remain relevant today. May they guide our decisions and actions. We commit to learn, to educate, to honour sacred places and to take actions toward real Truth and Reconciliation.
