On National Truth and Reconciliation Day, we want to acknowledge that Indigenous people have a deep spiritual connection to the land. We, the Aphasia Institute, acknowledge that the land (Toronto) we are meeting on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaune and the Wendat people, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Metis. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. We honour the lost children, and survivors of residential schools, families, and communities, and recognize the ongoing challenges and systemic racism this community faces today.

Truth and Reconciliation Day
"Thank you so much for your accommodation of our presentation and study recruitment efforts! We got much more interest than we ever thought we would, and enough volunteers to keep us busy for a couple of years! ...Thank you for your help with everything! I am really happy to have the Aphasia Institute as a partner in our research. "
