Welcome Reception Sponsor
Sponsored in part by the Canadian Municipal Water Consortium
Canadian Water Network (CWN) respectfully recognizes and acknowledges the deep connection that First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples across Canada have with the land that all Canadians call home. We also honour and recognize the significance of the treaties that establish the relationship between Indigenous peoples and settlers on this land.
Our office is located in Waterloo, Ontario, on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. More specifically, our office is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that extends six miles on each side of the Grand River.
We are grateful for the privilege to work and live on this land.
Furthermore, for the Blue Cities Conference, taking place in Toronto, we acknowledge that it is situated on the traditional territory of multiple nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples. Today, Toronto is home to a diverse community of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
