We gratefully acknowledge the privilege we have to be working and living on land that is the traditional territory of many First Nations, Inuit, and Mètis peoples, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron Wendat peoples. This sacred territory known as Turtle Island has been a site of human activity for over 15,000 years and is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We recognize the violence and loss of culture that makes our presence on this land possible and recognize our responsibility to confront the violence and oppression in which we are complicit and to work to dismantle the structures and behaviours that perpetuate it. 

BUFCO is actively working to recognize our own contributions to the systemic inequities that exist in our society. We are committed to doing the hard work required to uproot racism in all its forms and to amplify and support the voices of those who experience racism. We understand the importance of listening with an open mind and heart to people impacted by inequity. We strive every day, in every action, to nurture and maintain an equitable working environment; to provide a path forward to fair, prosperous and hopeful futures for all; and to welcome people of all races, religions, nationalities, cultures, genders, sexual identities, languages, and abilities, so all can feel comfortable, respected, and valued.
