Land Acknowledgement

As part of our commitment to Reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live, work, learn, and play on the traditional and current lands of Treaty 6 First Nations (the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux) and Treaty 7 First Nations (the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation), and of the Métis People of Region 3. We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our community.
