Acknowledgement Statement

We, Champlain Township, are a community located in the rich basin of Kichisìpi - the Big River, where First Peoples have lived, gathered, and prospered since time immemorial.  

We are grateful to our nation’s First Peoples for their cultural stewardship of the Ottawa riverlands and welcome their knowledge and wisdom on matters of community interest.

Champlain Township acknowledges that we are located on the unceded traditional territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin People of the Ottawa River.  Furthermore, we acknowledge the lands which we call home have deep spiritual and historical connections to both the Anishinaabe Algonquin Peoples and the Kanienʼkehá:ka Mohawk Peoples of Akwesasne.  Champlain Township is committed to building a strong relationship with these and other Indigenous Nations who call Eastern Ontario home.
