The Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent acknowledges our Centre is located on ancestral land and traditional territory, still home to Indigenous people across Turtle Island. We acknowledge the Lunaapeew people at EElunaapeewilahkeew or Delaware Nation, who were displaced to their current location from their original ancestral homelands, the Ojibwe, Potawatomi and Odawa people of Bkejwanong, and the Fiddle and Sash Metis Community.

Sharing and developing this acknowledgement has given the Centre deeper appreciation and understanding of our Indigenous clients, families and community.We commit to continued learning from the past and present to prompt us forward in our steps towards reconciliation. Our goal is to create an environment where people feel safe, welcome, valued, have a sense of belonging and can bring their whole selves to our services and workplace to Celebrate Abilities and Develop Potential. We continue to reflect upon this land acknowledgement, what it means to us, and how we can progress in upholding the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
