Our Values

To create spaces for healing and reconciliation. We partner with Indigenous artists & knowledge keepers to share, teach, or perform. We work in tandem with the non–Indigenous community organizations to accomplish shared goals We receive support from local community and we support local businesses.

Land Acknowledgement

This land acknowledgement is for the Indigenous People who have inhabited and cared for this land before us for thousands of years. The nations mentioned in this acknowledgment are the Ojibway, Potawatomi, Odawa, Algonquin, Huron-Wendat, Neutral, Petun, Seneca, Haudensaunee, Metis and The Mississauga of The Credit First Nation.

We show honour for the sun, the sky, the water and the earth and its core, which also deserve recognition and respect as necessary elements for our lives here.

The great tree of peace is important for all of us to join together in unity, as we are all connected, not only by its roots, but in many subtle ways.

 Today, Mississauga is still home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to live, work, and protect these lands and waters with them. By doing so, we show respect for the importance of Indigenous Peoples, their history, and our future together. May we show our gratefulness to have the opportunity to work, play and live on this land, by giving our greatest respect to its first inhabitants.
