The University of Toronto acknowledges that the land on which it operates has, for thousands of years, been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and the University is grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
