Land Acknowledgement

Hamilton is located on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples dating back thousands of years. We recognize and respect their contributions and the treaties between the Huron-Wendat, Mississauga, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Erie, Neutral nations and the Crown. Today, this meeting place is still home to many Indigenous people and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work here.
