In keeping with recognition of the need for Truth and Reconciliation, we acknowledge the historic location of our meeting on the traditional territories of Indigenous Peoples included in the Upper Canada Land Surrenders, specifically Treaty 2,1790 and Treaty 3,1792.
Long before European settlers came to this land, the area was the traditional home of the Anishinaabe, Mississauga, Attiwondweronk, and Haudenossaunee people. We acknowledge the rights, dignity and well being of the indigenous peoples of the world, and we are grateful to participate in the stewardship of this land which is currently home to the communities of Munsee-Delaware First Nation, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, and Oneida Nation of the Thames.
