Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge our presence on the traditional territories of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, Attawandaron and Leni-Lunaape, particularly the Mississaugas of the Credit. The place now called Ontario is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and operate in this land.

Don Valley Community Legal Services respects that we operate our services under The Toronto Purchase Treaty No. 13 (1805).

We also recognize and acknowledge that we are in the Dish With One Spoon territory. This is an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinaabeg and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the land and waters of the Great Lakes region.
