Acknowledgement of our settler-colonial history is needed for meaningful reconciliation in our society.
Emily Carr University is situated on unceded, traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way.
Most of BC remains unceded. To see what this means, we recommend the map available at native-land.ca.
BC is legendary for its natural beauty, and living in Vancouver puts you in easy reach of it all.
