Equity, Diversity, Inclusion

Indigenous Studies
CDS is committed to furthering the principles of acceptance, diversity and inclusion and to identifying and eliminating discriminatory biases and systemic barriers.

A recent example of this is how CDS chose to honour Canada’s first National Day of Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day in October 2021.

Brent Johnston, CDS's Executive Director of Advancement, shared his experiences as a Mohawk as a guest at both the Middle and Senior School assemblies. “Every Indigenous person’s story is unique,” he explained. “Our community has to listen to more stories and continue to learn and explore what more they can do.”

Land Acknowledgment

The Country Day School wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. Our nearest Indigenous Nations are now the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Chippewas of Georgina Island. The Dish with One Spoon Wampum covenant is often cited as an example of the shared responsibility for caring for these lands among the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples who would call these their traditional territories. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection to this land can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for the land and waters for future generations.
