We want to acknowledge that the Province of Alberta is situated on the traditional territories of treaties 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10, the homelands of the Métis, including the eight Métis Settlements and the six Métis Regions, and Inuit. We recognize, honour, and respect the Indigenous peoples of Canada, their beliefs and histories, and are grateful for the historic and current stewardship of the land that we share with them and call home.
