Land Acknowledgment

The Board of Directors is committed to advancing Truth and Reconciliation in relationship with Indigenous peoples and communities. 

As an important step in recognizing the recommendations from The Truth and Reconciliation Commission's final report, our agency has embarked on their own journey with how we developed and implemented our Land Acknowledgment.
