Pride at Work Canada/Fierté au travail Canada operates on the unceded, stolen and treatied traditional territories of hundreds of diverse Indigenous nations, which include Two-Spirit and LGBTQIA+ Indigenous communities. If you are unsure on whose lands you are currently working on and living on, please refer to www.native-land.ca to learn more.
Pride at Work Canada/Fierté au travail Canada’s main office is based in Tkarón:to/Toronto, which is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the New Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands. These lands and waters are the traditional homes and territories of and cared for by the Anishinaabeg, Wendat, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
There are over 70 treaties signed between the Government of Canada and diverse Indigenous nations. As a national organization, we support and uphold these treaties. In an act of reconciliation, we also endorse national Indigenous initiatives such as land and water sovereignty and protections and Indigenous human rights issues. We endorse the United Nations Declaration of Rights for Indigenous Peoples and strive to empower 2SLGBTQIA+ Indigenous peoples residing in what is colonially known as Canada.
Pride at Work Canada/Fierté au travail Canada’s mandate is to empower Canadian employers through dialogue, education and thought leadership to build workplaces that celebrate all employees regardless of gender expression, gender identity, and sexual orientation. In this regard, we empower and uplift Two-Spirit, Indigiqueer and LGBTQIA+ Indigenous peoples, while understanding the complexities of diverse Indigenous identities and that they are not defined by the English or French language. In this regard, we have partnered with 2 Spirits in Motion and Indigenous Works to support our initiatives in reciprocity with Indigenous communities.
