About Canadian Scholars
We wish to acknowledge the land on which the Toronto office of Canadian Scholars operates. Since time immemorial, this land has been the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat. Toronto is under the Dish with One Spoon treaty, in which all Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people, along with all newcomers to Turtle Island, have been invited to share and protect the land in the spirit of peace, friendship, and respect.
The members of our office who operate from the west coast wish to acknowledge the land on which they live and work. We are grateful they are able to work, learn, and collaborate on the traditional territory of the Katzie First Nation, as well as the traditional unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
We wish to promote resources such as Native-Land and Whose.Land which allow Indigenous communities to represent their histories, languages, and culture in their own words; as well as challenge non-Indigenous settlers to engage in meaningful learning and reflection on the lands they inhabit, the history of colonialism across Turtle Island, and the path to building a better future together.
