Territorial Acknowledgement: We acknowledge that the land on which the work of Every Kid in Our Communities is performed is the traditional and unceded territory of the Anishinaabe, Algonquin, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Mississauga, and Mohawk peoples. We acknowledge the legacy of colonialism and the inequities it created that are ongoing. We are committed to reducing thee inequities through the work of EKIOC. We acknowledge the enduring presence of the Indigenous people with whom we share this land today, their achievements, and their contributions to our community and commit to learning from them. We offer this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples of Canada.
