Indigenous Territory Land Acknowledgements

July 1, 2021

Today on July 1st, many Canadians celebrate this day and the beautiful land we are able to call home. But it is also a day to pause and reflect, learn and honour our history. 

We want to acknowledge the dark history, past and present, that Indigenous families and communities have experienced and continue to experience; as well as the terrible findings that have come to light over the recent weeks.
