Canada Day is a time to come together as a community, appreciate our great nation and show off our Canadian pride! Celebrate Canada’s birthday with the Township of West Lincoln. 

Land Acknowledgement  

On behalf of the Members of Committee/Members of Council and staff, we wish to acknowledge this land on which the Township of West Lincoln operates. The land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples and is still home to many indigenous people today. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work here today and to follow the Haudenosaunee system of blending laws and values and the Anishinaabe beliefs to strive to live in harmony and balance throughout the Municipality. We acknowledge that we are all treaty people and accept our responsibility to honour all our relations.
