Our Y declares its pledge to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. We acknowledge and respect that our programs, services, and community facilities are on the traditional territory of the Passamaquoddy, Wolastoqiyik/Maliseet, and Mi’kmaq nations. Our Y is aware of the impact that colonial actions, including residential schools, have had on our Indigenous Peoples, and we remain committed to understanding past injustices and will continue to move forward for a better future.
