Land Acknowledgement

Home 9 Land Acknowledgement

Between 2007 and 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission engaged the Canadian public, educating people about the history and legacy of the Canadian residential school system and sharing the experiences of former students and their families.

At the close of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, it became clear that much work needed to be done to heal the wounds left by the legacy of the residential school system. To help move the healing process forward, the Innisfail Town Council begins each meeting with a land acknowledgement.

Town of Innisfail - Land Acknowledgement

The Town of Innisfail acknowledges that we are meeting on Treaty 7 territory, the ancestral and traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika, as well as the Tsuu T’ina First Nation and Stoney Nakada First Nation. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region #3 within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the Traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us.

We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on.
