We acknowledge the history, spirituality, culture, and stewardship of the land of the Indigenous people of this region, the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River.
We seek to live in respect, peace, and right relations with them as we live, work, and worship upon their traditional territory.
