Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
In the prayerful hope of true reconciliation and healing we acknowledge the land we are meeting on has been the site of human activity for over 15,000 years.  This land is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to live, work and worship on this land.
