Human Rights

Acknowledging the Territory

Fleming College respectfully acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional territory of the Michi Saagig Anishinaabe, which is covered by the Williams Treaty and Treaty # 20. We are grateful for the opportunity to work and teach here and we thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land – for thousands of years. We also recognize the contributions of Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous peoples, both in shaping and strengthening this community and country as a whole. This recognition is connected to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our Fleming community. To learn more about Indigenous peoples or get involved in reconciliation work at Fleming, contact Indigenous Student Services about their many educational activities and events.

Your human rights are important to us, and respecting those rights is how Fleming College contributes to an equitable society.
