At Child Development Institute we acknowledge that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat and the Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. Our community is home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous Peoples on this land.
