Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS)
in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada
accepts the responsibility, as a
Downie-Wenjack Fund (DWF) Legacy School,
to “engage, empower, and connect students to further reconciliation” through ReconciliACTION.
As guests, we honour and thank the Saugeen First Nation as our community partners and traditional inhabitants of the lands and waters of Saugeen Shores and surrounding areas.
We acknowledge the territory of the Anishnaabe (Ah-nish-nah-beh) who have been living and working on the land from time immemorial as a sign of “recognition and respect, … essential elements for establishing healthy, reciprocal relations [which are] key to the reconciliation process to which Saugeen District Senior School is committed.” (CAUT, 2019, 2 of 3)
