About YWCA

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge  that we are on the traditional land of Treaty 6 Territory and the Metis Homeland of Region 4. The footsteps of diverse Indigenous peoples have marked this territory from time immemorial — First Nations, Metis, Inuit and now settlers from around the world. 

We are all treaty members, with recognition and respect for Indigenous Peoples and the traditional territories on which we live, work and play. We call upon our collective honoured traditions and spirits to share responsibility for stewardship of this beautiful land and our community.
