Land Acknowledgement

As part of the colonial history of Canada, non-Indigenous peoples have derived benefit from what the Royal Commission on Truth and Reconciliation defines as the “cultural genocide” of Indigenous peoples in this country.

At Confederation College, we accept our responsibility in a national reconciliation process and acknowledge that we are accountable for this tragic history. We are working to address injustices against Indigenous peoples and honouring our relationships with communities.

In renewing and building reconciliation processes, we are respecting the leadership of Indigenous peoples in changing the educational landscape. It is against this backdrop that Confederation College acknowledges that it is on Indigenous land and recognizes the presence of the Métis and Inuit peoples in the area.
