The land on which we gather at St. James, Caledon East is on the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee (ho-den-oh-show-nee), and Anishinabek (ah-nish-nah-bek) Nations and most recently the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. This territory was the subject of Treaty 19, also known as the Ajetance (ah-jet-ahnce) Purchase. 

We recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples connected to and on this land. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather on this territory and work in this community, and we commit ourselves to the work of reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
