Land Acknowledgement

The Collingwood General and Marine Hospital acknowledges it is located upon the traditional territory of the Anishinabek people of the Three Fires Confederacy. We also acknowledge that the Tionontati people of the Wyandot Nation also inhabited these lands.

We acknowledge that these nations were sovereign nations existing before the arrival of settlers and we respect pre-colonial treaties and covenants that are existing before settler arrival.

We also acknowledge the spiritual interconnection among these nations to the land and water we share here today.

We also acknowledge the waterways within the area as it has a long history predating European arrival. These waterways were the life blood of the people as traditional trade and hunting routes which provided essential navigation to communities since time immemorial.

We are dedicated to focus on the ongoing evolving needs of First Nations, Inuit and Metis individuals to provide innovative, and compassionate care.

In the spirit of Reconciliation, our team will continue to enhance and bring cultural understanding to the CGMH with collaborative Indigenous partnerships that will develop inclusion and diversity within our people and community.
