Land Acknowledgement

We are deeply committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion; at the forefront we honour Indigenous communities across Canada, it is their sacred land on which we are privileged to live and work. In the Greater Toronto Area, where ACCES operates, we acknowledge this land is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. 

As we carry out our mission of supporting job seekers, many of whom are recent immigrants to Canada, we embrace our responsibility to learn about the history and culture of Indigenous communities, the past and present harm, and impact of colonialism, including the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, and we are committed to working together towards building a more inclusive, just, and equitable future.
