Children and youth who are safe, happy, thriving and growing up with their family in a healthy, caring community.

Land Acknowledgment

The General Authority acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

Reconnaissance territoriale par la Régie générale

La Régie générale reconnait que nous sommes rassemblés sur le territoire du Traité no 1 et que le Manitoba se trouve sur les territoires visés par un traité et les terres ancestrales des peuples anichinabé, cri, oji-cri, dakota et déné. Nous reconnaissons aussi que le Manitoba se trouve sur le territoire des Métis de la rivière Rouge. Nous respectons l’esprit et l’objectif des traités et de la conclusion de ces derniers. Nous restons déterminés à travailler en partenariat avec les Premières Nations, les Inuits et les Métis dans un esprit de vérité, de réconciliation et de collaboration.
