We acknowledge that we are meeting on Indigenous land that has been inhabited by Indigenous peoples – for thousands of years. We are grateful for the opportunity to meet here, and we thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land. We acknowledge the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee ((hoe-dee-no-SHOW-nee)), Cree, Ojibway (Oh-jib-way)/Chippewa (Chip-poh-wah) and Anishnabek (Ah-Nish-Nah-Beck) peoples. This territory is covered by the Robinson Treaties, Treaty 9, Upper Canada Treaties and the Williams Treaties of 1923.
We recognize and deeply appreciate their historic connection to the land we are situated on. We also recognize the contributions that Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples have made, both in shaping and strengthening this community, our province and our country.
This recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples is connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities.
