2023-2028 WRHA Strategic Plan - Together We Care

Territorial Lands Statement

The Winnipeg Health Region provides services to all nations on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, Anishininewak, Dakota-Oyate, Dene, Inuit, and the national homeland of the Red River Métis. Treaties were created with the First Nations and include past, present, and future inhabitants, so we are all treaty people. Winnipeg Health Region serves those on Treaty 1 and Treaty 5 lands. We acknowledge the five Dakota communities in Manitoba that are not signatories to any treaties with Canada. We acknowledge that Winnipeg takes its drinking water from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation. We acknowledge that the acts of colonization which are part of our history have caused deep, lasting harm, which continues today. We commit ourselves, in a good way, to learning about truth and reconciliation, promote healing, and creating a better future for all.
