Land Acknowledgment

The Social Planning Council of Peel (SPCP) would like to express their gratitude and respect for the privilege to work and live on the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit River. This land has been the home to Indigenous people for thousands of years.

As guests on this land, we acknowledge the impacts of colonization, including unequal access to opportunities. We acknowledge our roles in supporting activities and policies that contribute to the decolonization and production of information to voice social issues and improve the quality of life for individuals and communities.

We are committed to working in partnerships with the Indigenous communities to ensure, this land acknowledgment is more than just words; it's a commitment to fostering respect, understanding, and reconciliation. We thank the Indigenous people of this land, and express our respect for their past, present, and future stewardship of this land.
