This session will explore the practice of acknowledging First Peoples and traditional land as a way to open meetings, and also as part of a larger process towards reconciliation between non-Indigenous and Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

The session accompanies the Guide to Acknowledging First Peoples and Traditional Land: Land Acknowledgements for Staff and Volunteers by Engineers Canada's Indigenous Advisory Committee. This facilitated panel discussion with Indigenous engineers, geoscientists, and Indigenous knowledge keepers will discuss the importance of this traditional protocol and its application to the engineering and geoscience professions.

Seminar Objectives

  • Understand the significance and purpose of land acknowledgments
  • Learn the steps to develop a land acknowledgment

Target Audience

  • Professional Engineers and Professional Geoscientists who work or are located on Indigenous land.
