Land Acknowledgement

IWC recognizes and acknowledges that we are situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississauga’s. This land is covered by the “Dish with One Spoon” Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation.

We affirm our gratitude to work and live on this land and affirm our commitment to honour and respect the rights and dignity of indigenous peoples.
