The Town of Caledon is recognizing National Indigenous Peoples Day today with a flag raising ceremony and the launch of new Indigenous Reconciliation resources.
In recognition of the presence and perspectives of the Indigenous People with whom Caledon shares land, the Town has created new Indigenous Reconciliation online resources such as educational tools, historical information, our land acknowledgement and other resources that help include input from the Indigenous community into our work.
“We honour, respect and acknowledge that the land which encompasses the Town of Caledon is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “On this National Indigenous Peoples Day, we reaffirm our commitment to understanding Indigenous history and working in collaboration with the launch of our new online resources.”
The Town is pleased to launch this initiative and plans to continue growing Indigenous resources available to the public. To learn more about the Town of Caledon’s Indigenous initiatives, visit our new culture webpage.
