Why is land acknowledgement important? Land acknowledgments are a fundamental step towards honouring and recognizing the First Nations communities that occupied the land before us and who continue to occupy the and today. As a Canadian, an employee, a business owner, a student etc..we need to take active steps in truth and reconciliation. Land acknowledgements are a first real and actionable step that we can all take.
