These last months the staff at the LRC have missed going into work, seeing our co-workers and enjoying the environment that influences our working day. We are lucky enough to work in a place surrounded by parks and trees where we get to experience the nature around us. At the LRC we respectfully acknowledge that the land where we work is the traditional territory of the Anishinabe, Attawandaron, the Haundenosaunee, and Mississaugas of the Credit. We also acknowledge that the land is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We also wish to acknowledge that we are settlers on this land and thank the stewards of this traditional territory as we share this land with the enduring presence of the Indigenous people.

June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada. This year in virtual classrooms and libraries across HCDSB we celebrate the history, heritage and diverse cultures of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada.
