Land Acknowledgement Statement

The Coalition for the West Credit River would like to acknowledge that the entire Credit River Watershed is part of the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, part of the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat, and the home to many Métis, Inuit and Indigenous Peoples.

We affirm that treaties made with the original inhabitants of these lands are enduring and include responsibilities for us all. The Coalition is grateful for the opportunity to work within these lands and waters, and accept our responsibility for the care and stewardship of all our relations.
