With great respect, we acknowledge the past, present and future Indigenous peoples as the original inhabitants and traditional guardians of this land that we call Canada and what is now North America. We acknowledge the devastating impact of colonisation on Indigenous communities, cultures, languages and homelands. We acknowledge our responsibility as settlers and newcomers to this country for reconciliation and allyship of support for Indigenous rights to be restored and commit ourselves to the journey of healing. Today, we honour the more than 630 First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
