Toronto is home to a vast diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis who enrich this city. Toronto Seniors Housing is committed to reconciliation. We honour the land through our communities and programs that reflect and respect its heritage. Our land acknowledgment marks a small but important step in the process of reconciliation and building a positive relationship with Indigenous people.
African Ancestral Acknowledgement
With the creation of the Confronting Anti-Black Racism (CABR) Strategy to address anti-Black racism at Toronto Seniors Housing and Toronto Community Housing, an African Ancestral Acknowledgement was introduced by the City of Toronto CABR Unit. It is a voluntary recognition offered to support Black staff wishing to use it to acknowledge their ancestors of African descent who have been present and actively contributing to life on Treaty lands and traditional Indigenous territories since the early 1600s.
