Land Acknowledgement

The Institute on Governance office is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Algonquin/Anishinaabe people.

We pay respect to the Algonquin people, who are the traditional guardians of this land. We acknowledge their longstanding relationship with this territory, which remains unceded.

We pay respect to all Indigenous people in this region, from all nations across Canada, who call Ottawa home. 

We acknowledge the traditional knowledge keepers, both young and old.

We honour their courageous leaders: past, present, and future.

We aspire to work with respect and integrity, in partnership, with all Indigenous people from across Canada. 

The IOG acknowledges and respects the unique forms of governance lived and practiced by Indigenous peoples throughout history.
