Land Acknowledgement

WoodGreen Community Services acknowledges the land we are on is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat people, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples.

We also acknowledge that Tkaronto (Toronto) is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We are all Treaty people. Many of us have come here as settlers, immigrants, and newcomers in this generation or generations past. We’d like to also acknowledge and honour those who came here involuntary, particularly those who are descended from those brought here through enslavement.
