TERRITORIAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:  Canada is home to more than 600 First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities, which represent more than 50 Nations and 50 Indigenous languages. We recognize and acknowledge the long and lasting traditions and spiritual connections of all Indigenous communities including the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee who were the first stewards of the land where we work and live, and we commit to active reconciliation by promoting awareness and education.
