‘Our Children’s Medicine’ (Kiinago Biinoogi Muskiiki in Ojibway) is a traditional spirit name.

We recognize that our work, and the work of our partners, takes place on traditional Indigenous territories across Canada and Turtle Island.

We also wish to acknowledge that the Our Children’s Medicine head office is located on the traditional Indigenous territory of the Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.

This territory is part of the Dish with One Spoon Treaty, an agreement between the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

We wish to express gratitude to Mother Earth and for the resources we are using, and honour all the First Nation, Métis and Inuit people who have been living on the land since time immemorial.

“It’s through our community partnerships [with Indigenous-focused organizations] that we’ve made the most change. They help us connect directly with communities and build long-term relationships. This is not something that happens overnight.”

Brent Chamberlain, Vice - President of Inclusion, CIBC.
