Land Acknowledgement Statement

Toronto Reference Library is on Indigenous land. This is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy (also known as the Six Nations Confederacy), the Wendat, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Toronto Public Library gratefully acknowledges these Indigenous nations for their guardianship of this land. We’d also like to remind and reaffirm, as Torontonians and Canadians, our accountability to these Indigenous nations, and to all Indigenous peoples and communities living in Toronto.

This land is also part of the Dish with One Spoon territory that includes a treaty between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinaabek and allied nations, to peaceably share and care for this land, its waters, and all of the biodiversity in the Great Lakes region.  All those who come to live and work here are responsible for honouring this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship, and respect.

Closed Meeting Requirements:

If the Toronto Public Library Board wants to meet in closed session (privately), a member of the Board must make a motion to do so and given the reason why the Board has to meet privately (Public Libraries Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.44, s. 16.1).
