We acknowledge the Anishinabek (Ojibway) Mashkegowick, (Cree) and Hodenashoone (Mohawk confederacy) as the guardians and traditional keepers of the land on which the people of East Scarborough live work and play.

We recognize the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation as the current holders of these traditional territories. We at the Centre for Connected Communities recognize the injustice of colonization and, in all our work, strive for equity and justice for all people.
