PEBC Land Acknowledgement

Indigenous peoples are the traditional guardians of this land that we call Canada;

  • that this land is everywhere unceded and that the organization we represent has a duty to acknowledge its relationship to the land upon which we live and work, and to prioritize initiatives that support reconciliation with local Indigenous communities;
  • that the keepers of traditional Indigenous knowledge in every community are worthy of honor, consideration and respect;
  • that courageous Indigenous leaders, young and old, deserve the ongoing support of all Canadians to create equal opportunities for everyone of this land; and
  • that reconciliation will be successful when all Canadians have committed to learning about our shared past, listening to Indigenous truths, and pursuing a new and more inclusive, collaborative and respectful path towards a better future.

PEBC acknowledges that its office is on the traditional territory of many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis people, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat.
