We acknowledge our Mother Earth that gives us life, nourishes us and is our greatest partner. We act with reverence, respect, and reciprocity in all that we do.
We acknowledge the First Peoples who have lived and thrived on these lands for thousands of years and who have kept this sacred relationship alive for all of humanity. Here in Ontario, we acknowledge the Anishinaabe, the Wendat and the Haudenosaunee, Métis and Inuit people who have been living on these lands since time immemorial.
We acknowledge all our ancestors that have walked and stewarded these lands before us and those that continue to walk with us on this journey to a more harmonious world.
We acknowledge our responsibility to think of those yet to come and to leave them a world that is capable of providing an abundant life.
With love in our hearts, we say Migwetch, Madu, Merci, Gracias, Dyakuyu, Thank you.
