Indigenous Acknowledgement Statement

SSM is committed to ensuring that First Nations, Métis and Inuit knowledge, cultures and traditions are appreciated and respected in the pursuit of its mission.

An acknowledgement of these lands that we are on today, and of the SSM commitment to respecting Indigenous peoples and communities, form part of the corporate values that define SSM.

SSM facilities are located on original lands of Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.

SSM is committed to a renewed relationship and dialogue with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples based on the principles of mutual trust, respect, and reciprocity.

We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
