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

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
