We would like to acknowledge that this school is situated upon traditional territories. The territories

include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee

Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations, and the Métis Nation.

The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Toronto Purchase

and applies to lands east of Brown’s Line to Woodbine Avenue and north towards Newmarket. We

also recognize the enduring presence of Aboriginal peoples on this land.
