National Truth and Reconciliation Day

We acknowledge that CTYS is situated on the unceded lands and territories of the Anishanabeg, Haudenosaunee, the Chippewa, the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse nations.  We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit.

It is important that we recognize the lands on which we gather and that we acknowledge the historical impact and multi-generational effects of colonization, oppressive laws and broken treaties that have occurred here and are an ongoing dimension of our collective responsibilities.

Along with this acknowledgement, we must act in solidarity to support Indigenous sovereignty over their traditional territories and ways of life and to restore land unjustly taken.

We respectfully recognize the presence of Indigenous peoples, both in the past and present, as we commit to action, education, meaningful dialogue and necessary change.
