The land I am standing on today is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Meìtis peoples. I also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
Please note that the descriptions for any and all points of interest relating to or directly describing Indigenous content are a very basic introduction to Indigenous Placemaking and knowledge sharing. As settlers of this land, we recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples and we acknowledge that we are not the knowledge keepers of this information. Indigenous Knowledge is only fully engaged through ongoing ethical participation within Indigenous communities and protocols. These strolls are living documents and as we embark upon an enriching partnership with First Story and the Indigenous Affairs Office we are deeply committed to a process that allows for the consultation, review and revision of this content. Sharing and witnessing Indigenous narratives through oral tradition will be at the forefront of our work together.
The City of Toronto is committed to building an inclusive society and ensuring compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. StrollTO itineraries assume the physical ability of participants to view a point of interest from a reasonable distance (i.e. in a green space or on street level) and will provide as much detailed information about accessibility features or barriers at the viewing spot as is available. If you require additional information about the accessibility of a point of interest/itinerary or if you require this information in an alternate format, please contact us at 416-338-2786.
We welcome your feedback. The StrollTO itineraries provide as much detailed information about accessibility features or barriers at the viewing spot as is available. You may have additional information to share on the accessibility of a point of interest on a StrollTO program. We can use the information in updating current itineraries and developing new ones. Please contact us at 416-338-2786.
Around every corner, down every street and in every neighbourhood, there’s something to be shared in Toronto. #ShowLoveTO
