Our Story | Alumni | University of Guelph


Land Acknowledgement

With great respect, Alumni Affairs & Development acknowledges the land that connects us all. We recognize and offer gratitude that the University of Guelph resides on treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Odawa, Potawatami and Ojibwe and lands that the Anishinnabe, Hodinohso:ni, Lūnaapéewak and Wendat peoples have inhabited for centuries. We uphold the significance of the Dish with One Spoon Covenant and the continuing relationship our Indigenous neighbours have with this land.
