We wish to acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and the Squamish.

We also want to say it is far more complex than such a simple acknowledgement represents. We encourage all our members, staff, and visitors to learn more about the complexity of indigenous lives on this land, of visitors relationship to land, its history and between the various peoples who call this home.

We recommend these sites if you wish to begin to explore where we are:

A map of the overlapping territories of many, many local indigenous peoples

A brief history published in Vancouver is Awesome
