It is with respect, humility and kindness that our team would like to acknowledge the land that nourishes us. We acknowledge our interconnectedness and are thankful for the water that flows and the life that grows each day.
Our organization is comprised of a team from many diverse backgrounds who are situated on Indigenous lands across many First Nations, Inuit and Metis communities. In this context, we approach our work with a shared responsibility in upholding treaty agreements and awareness of the ancestors who have come before us, along with the impact of our efforts for generations to come. For thousands of years, the land on which our Toronto headquarters office operates has been a gathering place and traditional territory of the Anishinaabe (including the Mississaugas of the Credit), Haudenosaunee, and Huron-Wendat peoples. We also recognize the enduring presence of all First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples.
