Land Acknowledgement

The meaning of land acknowledgement

Following the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action, in 2015, the custom of land acknowledgement was revived to acknowledge the Indigenous Nation or Nations that occupy the territory where a meeting is taking place.

Land Acknowledgement

Land acknowledgements are a first step in the journey of Reconciliation, honouring the land and Indigenous presence which dates back over 10,000 years. It provides a moment to demonstrate recognition of Indigenous lands, treaties and peoples, and reflect about the past and what changes are needed to further Reconciliation.

Our commitment to Reconciliation
