Camp Wheeler acknowledges our presence on ancestral and traditonal territory of Anishinabek peoples.
It is important to know that we are using the land and it's resources on the Treaty 16 and Treaty 20. The Anishinaabe territory of the Anishinabek peoples and Chippewa Nations collectively known as the Robinsons Huron Treaty and the Williams Treaties First Nation which include; Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scuggog Island, Rama, Beausoleil and Georgina Island First Nations.
The treaties were to establish a relationship between First Nations and the Europeans on the basis of respect for one another. It was an understanding that the Britain Crown would not interfere with the economy or activities of First Nations and that the two Nations would live side by side. It is for all Nations sharing this territory to do so responsibly, respectfully and sustainable in perpetuity.
We respect the longstanding relationship with local Indigenous communities. Today this land is still home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work, live and play on this land
