Land Acknowledgment  

The City of Oshawa is situated on land steeped in rich Indigenous history and culture that is the present-day home to many First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. We acknowledge that we live and work on land covered within the Williams Treaties, which has been the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Huron-Wendat and Haudenosaunee Nations, among many other Indigenous nations, who have utilized this territory for trade and commerce for time immemorial.  

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the many Indigenous nations who have cared for the lands and waters from the beginning of time and still do so today. We are grateful for the opportunity to live and work on their territory.  

We are committed to understanding the truth of our shared history, confronting our past and present, and building a better future together in true reconciliation.
