Statement of Reconciliation

As we walk the path of reconciliation, we are mindful of the connections we share with all our relatives. We understand that these connections are impacted by colonization and that there is trauma in our relationships and to the land and Indigenous ways of life. We commit to listening and learning from our relationships, and to be guided by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s 94 Calls to Action and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
We acknowledge that our office stands on ancestral lands, on Treaty One Territory. These are the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We are grateful to our host nations.
