Land Acknowledgement

As a national research network, the Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network acknowledges that our members reside on the traditional lands and territories of numerous Indigenous peoples. We recognize and respect the diversity and history of these cultures as we strive towards inclusiveness and understanding on a daily basis. We value the views and traditional knowledge of Indigenous groups and are committed to research that benefits all communities and cultures.

Our administrative hub is based at Western University which is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Attawandaron peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum. This land continues to be home to diverse Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.
