We are located on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen speaking people also known as Esquimalt and Songhees. We acknowledge and respect the land that we are grateful to live, work and play. By honouring the survivors and the lives that were lost in residential schools, by acknowledging and understanding the Truth of the past, we can take steps to move forward towards reconciliation.
