LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable is grateful to acknowledge that we are on Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Traditional Territory of the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat.

We recognize that Halton is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples of the past, present and future. We continue to reflect on the past and acknowledge that which came before us, while recognizing the importance of taking the path of Truth and Reconciliation.

We are committed to raising awareness for building systemic inclusion and equity in Halton, and we strive to learn and work together effectively to move us forward towards a community where individuals are valued, respected and empowered.
