Land Acknowledgement & Our Commitment

The Community One Foundation lives, learns, and breathes on the ancestral, occupied, and traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples.

We are grateful to the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island who have cared for these lands since time immemorial. We hold our hands up to their amazing resistance, resilience, and strength in the face of ongoing dispossession and colonial violence.

The Community One Foundation firmly believes in holding up the resistance of Indigenous Peoples and the voices of queer, trans, and Two-Spirit Indigenous Peoples in our communities. We are always striving to support anti-/de-colonial initiatives and move toward reconciliation and Indigenous sovereignty.

The Community One Foundation strives towards allyship in all forms, always working to do better through an ever-learning, and sometimes imperfect, process. We aim for accountability and transparency by listening to and centering Indigenous voices and voices of colour in our work/programs/initiatives/organizing.

We know that the work we do in supporting queer, trans, and Two-Spirit Peoples must come together and include the uplifting of Indigenous Nations upon whose land we play, collaborate, and build communities.
