Our Impact

Land Acknowledgement

In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The city of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We would also like to note that the CanLearn Society is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now call the City of Calgary.
