Territorial Acknowledgement

The YMCA of Three Rivers recognizes and acknowledges that we deliver our programs and services on the traditional territories and treaty lands of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnaabeg, Mississauga of the Credit, Wendat, and Neutral nations. We acknowledge also that the history of Indigenous nations in these regions is not static, and cannot be briefly summarized. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum, the Haldimand Treaty of Oct. 25, 1784, Treaty 3 of 1792, and Treaty 29/Huron Tract Purchase of 1827. Today, our catchment area is home to First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and other Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. 
 
As treaty people, we commit to building relationships characterized by respect and equality. In particular, we encourage non-Indigenous staff, volunteers, members, and clients to reflect on their personal obligations and locations as recent arrivals to the territories sustained by the three rivers for which we are named.

Our Impact

As a charity, the YMCA of Three Rivers is committed to making our diverse communities healthier and more vibrant. With dignity and respect, our programs and services have been created to inspire individuals to reach their full potential. What did this look like in 2022?

JAIDE

Justice, Access, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity. These are the actions and values that we will root ourselves in across all our programs and services. This work will be driven by the core values that we believe must underpin each action we take – Equity and Accountability. We have created a JAIDE Action Plan to guide our actions and to which we will hold ourselves accountable and expect others to do the same.
