Indigenous Land Acknowledgements: All of the Canadian territory we live on was occupied before European settlement by indigenous communities and it’s good to know about our own local indigenous history. In Ottawa-Gatineau many faith-based communities such as mine, St. Basil’s parish, and provincial and federal government events begin by acknowledging our presence on the unceded traditional land of the Anishinaabe (Algonquin) nation. In Montreal, McGill has information on the indigenous land it sits on and has links to the importance of land acknowledgements at

https://www.mcgill.ca/indigenous/land-and-peoples/learn-about-land-and-peoples-tiohtiake-montreal.

If you Google land acknowledgement and the name of your location you’ll find your indigenous community history. For example, Halifax and Mi’kmaw. The acknowledgement can be included at the beginning of any prayer or other gathering.

We reused everything we could. This is the case of the kitchen hood, which has not been moved and whose ducts have been "rejuvenated". Some items, such as shelves, were redistributed and found a new use elsewhere in the Mother house. Others, such as the old oven, will be donated to organizations that need them and can give them a second life.
