Honouring a Longer History

In 2017, as we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the formal creation of Peel, Ontario, and Canada, it is essential to recognize that Indigenous peoples have lived here for over 10,000 years.

We are honoured to be here, in the traditional territory of the Wyandot, Seneca, and Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations. We are thankful to the many First Nations, Inuit, Métis and global peoples who call this region home.

Thank you.
