Territory Acknowledgement

Ampersand would like to respectfully acknowledge the people of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe, the Huron-Wendat, the Mississauga and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, on whose traditional territory our Toronto office resides. We would also like to acknowledge the people and the histories of the Coast Salish, Tsawwassen, Stó:lō, Kwantlen, Stz'uminus First Nation, Musqueam and Hul'qumi'num Treaty Group, on whose unceded territory our Richmond office occupies. We strive to continue to educate ourselves on the history of these lands and their people, to show respect and help bring an end to the effects of colonialism in Canada.
