In the spirit of respect and reciprocity, we recognize the sacred land of the Indigenous Peoples who call this home. We acknowledge that we live and work on Treaty 6, 7, and 8 Territory, also home to the Metis Settlements and the 6 Regions of the Metis Nation of Alberta, within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland. We recognize the relationship and the responsibility that we have to the land that we reside on and we honour the spiritual connection to this place. We acknowledge the First Nations and Metis who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We express our gratitude to the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation.
