Yelp Canada acknowledges that its Toronto office and its meetings are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
June 21st was National Indigenous Peoples Day, and June was Indigenous Peoples Month, but at Yelp Canada it is our honour to support Indigenous-owned businesses and non-profits all year round. We recognize that we have not always done as well as we could. We will continue to do better. As a humble start, and a different approach to Canada Day, we point you towards these wonderful businesses and organizations.
