We respectfully acknowledge that our office is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations – and that our work takes place in the territories of Indigenous peoples across the province, including the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples.
