Indigenous Rights and Services
We acknowledge that Halton Community Legal Services is located on the treaty territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe Nation, Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. We also acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people who now call Halton home. We are grateful for the opportunity to be working on this land.
In order to redress the legacy of colonialism including residential schools and advance the process of Canadian reconciliation, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada issued 94 calls to action including calling upon the legal community to acquire skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.
Halton Community Legal Services recognizes that Indigenous residents of Halton (regardless of status) have rights and may be entitled to special programs and specific services that are culturally appropriate and address their needs.
If you identify as Indigenous, we may be able to connect you with culturally appropriate services and resources and help you access them.
Halton Community Legal Services’ work is guided by our part-time Indigenous Justice Coordinator and supported by Legal Aid Ontario’s Aboriginal Justice Strategy.
