AlgomaTrad acknowledges the Indigenous Peoples of the lands on which we all live. We do this to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility to improving relationships between nations AND to improving our own understanding of local Indigenous people and their cultures. From coast to coast to coast, we acknowledge the ancestral and unceded territory of all the Inuit, Métis, and First Nations people that call this land home. We recognize the harms of the past and hope that we can all move forward in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration. The  AlgomaTrad Centre is on the traditional lands of the Aniishinaabe and Métis. We are committed to honouring their voices, and to learning from their community members.
