The Canadian Marine Careers Foundation respectfully acknowledges that this event will take place on the traditional, unceded, and unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation. Ottawa, situated on the banks of the Ottawa River, holds deep historical and cultural significance for the Indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land since time immemorial. We recognize the enduring connection of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation to these waters and express our gratitude for the opportunity to gather, learn, and collaborate on this land.
