Indigenous Acknowledgement:

THE WOMEN'S CANADIAN CLUB OF TORONTO is pleased to acknowledge the 2018 St. Andrew's United Land Acknowledgement. As we gather for meetings at St Andrew's United Church, we acknowledge that we are on land that has been the site of human activity for thousands of years. Toronto is still home to many Indigenous people, and we are neighbours. We are mindful of broken covenants and the need to make right with all our relations.
