National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is September 30th

THE SALVATION ARMY OSHAWA LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The Salvation Army Oshawa acknowledges the many Indigenous nations with longstanding relationships with the territories upon which our Church and our Community & Family Services are located. We acknowledge the land is covered under the Williams Treaties, and is part of the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

These ancestral and treaty lands; the present-day home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people is where we meet, share hope, and build community.

We reflect on knowing the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home. We are treaty people, it is our privilege to build relationships through reconciliation.

While we cannot undo the past, we are committed to a different future and doing our part to contribute to an equitable, just, and grace-filled society.
