In the spirit of connections and with great respect, Beginnings recognizes that our work takes place on traditional territories and ancestral lands of the Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit peoples. We also wish to acknowledge that our Hamilton location is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississauga peoples.

We are thankful to be able to work and live in these territories. We also recognize that Land Acknowledgements are not enough and that words must be followed up by actions. Beginnings commits to furthering our understanding of how colonial systems continue to actively harm Indigenous peoples today. We acknowledge the Indigenous culture of knowledge sharing that leverages collective experiences and allows people to learn from one another. We, as social workers, and social service providers, recognize our contributing role in history and will continue to work to bring about change, in the spirit of mutual respect, truth and reconciliation.
