We acknowledge that we are located on the Haldimand Tract, traditional and unceded territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Neutral Peoples. It encompasses 980,000 acres of land that was given to the Six Nations in 1784, 10 kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon Treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabe Peoples and symbolizes the agreement to share, protect our resources, and not to engage in conflict.
We extend our respect to all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples for their past and present contributions to this land. We also recognize and respect the cultural diversity that First Nations, Métis, and Inuit bring to our region.
We are grateful for the opportunity to operate and meet here and affirm our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our organization.
