For over 15,000 years, the First Nations walked upon and cared for the lands we call home. The Anishinabek, Haudenosaunee, Ojibwe, and many others cared for their families and communities the way we now seek to care for ours.
Community Connection acknowledges the Lake Simcoe-Nottawasaga Treaty of 1818. We respect all Nation-to-Nation agreements that have formed relationships with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island, the reality of our shared history, and the current contributions of Indigenous people within our community.
We seek to continue empowering expressions of pride amongst all diverse people in our community.
