As a national and Indigenous-owned organization, NWITC honours and acknowledges the traditional and ancestral territories of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples across the country. We recognize the diversity of Indigenous peoples and communities coast to coast, including over 600 First Nations Communities, four Inuit Nunangat regions comprised of 53 Inuit communities, Metis Nations, settlements and regions, Treaties 1-11, 25 modern treaties, and all unceded territories.
We respect the historic and current relationship Indigenous peoples have to the land on which we reside. We are committed to collaborating and establishing respectful relationships with Indigenous peoples by striving to practice reconciliation in our everyday lives, communities, and workplaces. We encourage you to take part in learning the local Indigenous history of the land on which you reside.
Our collaborations with Indigenous communities are built on the belief that Indigenous businesses, people, and communities deserve opportunity and prosperity.
