Land Acknowledgement

The offices of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada (“Federation”) are located on the historic, unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg people – the original custodians of the land now known as Ottawa. We acknowledge and extend our respect to the Algonquin people who have lived on this land since before memory, as well as the other First Nation, Metis and Inuit peoples with whom we share these lands. 

Each year our member law societies welcome the Federation to gather in the province or territory in which they are situated. The Federation is honoured to visit, and learn about, the historic Indigenous lands across Canada. We acknowledge the diversity of Indigenous peoples from coast to coast to coast and we recognize the enduring relationship that exists between them and their lands.
