Land acknowledgement

We want to acknowledge that the land we live, work and play 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 and forever has been 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.

We are privileged today to be able to enjoy the benefits of this land, which supports all that we do. We recognize that a land acknowledgement is a living document that will change as our learning grows about the land and its original peoples. We are grateful to the original and ongoing caretakers of this land and for the opportunity to live, work and create in Toronto. We are inspired by treaty values in the spirit of community, coming together, truth and reconciliation. Miigwetch, nya:węh merci and thank you to the peoples on whose territory we are able to live and thrive.
