Land acknowledgement

We give thanks to the Musqueam people for welcoming us on their territory. We will be working diligently to live up to our collective responsibility to honour and respect their protocols and homeland, to build relationships, and to engage meaningfully with their knowledge in this Congress and beyond. Our gratitude extends to the Sḵwxw̱ ú7mesh (Squamish) and sə̓lílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations, for hosting Congress attendees on their unceded territories that we now know to be the city of Vancouver.

We strongly encourage all conference participants to visit the Aboriginal Portal UBC Vancouver site on the link below:
