Our headquarters sit on the ancestral and unceded traditional territory of the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet). We thank and acknowledge these First Peoples as the past, present and future caretakers of this land. This territory is covered by the "Treaties of Peace and Friendship" which Mi’kmaq Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources, but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We are all Treaty people.
