Land Acknowledgement

The Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division Nova Scotia Division recognizes that we live work and play in Kjipuktuk (Halifax) in Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia, Canada), the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People.

This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which Mi’kmaq, Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. This treaty continues to be upheld today.

We are also in HRM which was settled and built by people of African ancestry in the 18th and 19th centuries.

African Nova Scotians were formative in the building of our communities in meaningful ways and have contributed to the development of Nova Scotia as we know it today.

At CMHA NS we acknowledge that we have benefited from the colonization of this region, and we strive for respectful relationships with the stewards of this land.

We must not forget that we are all treaty people and that we have responsibilities to each other and to this land.
