Land Acknowledgement

JusticeTrans was founded in Tkaronto, now known as Toronto, on Treaty 13 and Williams Treaty territory. Tkaronto means “where there are trees standing in the water” in Kanien’Kéha. This is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnaabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples.

View Full Statement

We acknowledge these nations as the stewards of these lands and waters and thank them for their care.As a national organization our staff and board lives, works, and plays across Turtle Island in what is colonially known as Canada. We recognize that over 600 Indigenous nations, have tended to these lands and waters as their home fires, and their traditiona l territories. These nations have made it possible for us to do our work, and they deserve our respect. At JusticeTrans we are committed to having a collaborative and empowering relationship with the 2Spirit and Indigenous trans, non-binary and gender diverse communities we serve. We also commit to dismantling the forms that settler colonialism inherently takes in our work.

We stand in solidarity with Indigenous nations across Turtle Island, and we bear witness and hold ourselves and others accountable to the atrocities of the past and the ongoing violence and oppression that are inherent to settler colonial systems, socialization, and practices.For more interactive maps of Indigenous territories and data visit:
