We encourage involvement from everyone
As an organization committed to inclusion, we especially wish to reach out to communities of colour, refugees and newcomers, as well as all persons who are living with a disability, identify as Indigenous, are of any gender and/or align with the LGBTQ2s+ community.
Our respect for the land
We acknowledge the privilege in providing Wellwood’s safe gathering spaces on lands that Indigenous peoples have called home for thousands of years. Chedoke Hospital, formerly on the grounds of our community site, provided tuberculosis treatment to 1,274 Inuit (many of whom were children) far from home, in what has now been recognized by official apology as a forced, traumatic relocation. This is a promise to never forget the harm that was done.
