Land Acknowledgement

Psychological & Counselling Services respectfully acknowledges that many Indigenous Nations have longstanding relationships, both historic and modern, with the territories upon which our Residential and Day Treatment programs are located.

We acknowledge with humility that our programs are situated on the Traditional Territory and Lands of Indigenous people.

  • Durham Region is located on the Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig territory and in the traditional territory of Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, The Mississauga Peoples, and the Treaty territory of the Chippewas of Georgian Island First Nation.


  • The city of Markham is situated upon traditional territories of the Anishinaabe Peoples and of the Haudenosaunee Peoples. These territories are covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. The first Nation community in closet proximity to the City of Markham are the Chippewas of Georgiana Island.

We recognize the enduring presence of all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. We are likewise committed to decolonizing our practice and honoring the truth and reconciliation for the future.
