Acknowledgement of Territory

We would like to acknowledge the sacred mother earth that the Mississaugas of the New Credit walked upon and on which the Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health now stands.

We would also like to pay our respects to all our ancestors and to our present Elders.

The Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health believes partnerships are the key to parity in Indigenous and non-Indigenous health: partnerships with Indigenous peoples, leaders and organizations; with educational, public health and cultural institutions; and with all levels of government.

Through partnerships built on respect, inclusion and trust, together we are laying the foundation for a sustainable future of wellness in Indigenous peoples — one policy, one community and one person at a time.
