Indigenous Resources

Land Acknowledgment:

Gratefully living, working and learning on the unceded traditional territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Collingwood School is committed to respecting, celebrating, and recognizing the land, people and spirit that spans our two campuses. We aim to cultivate meaningful and long lasting relationships with Indigenous communities because as Chief Justice Murray Sinclair, chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, has stated, “Reconciliation is not an Aboriginal problem – it involves all of us.”
