Recognition of indigenous territories

With collaboration as one of our values and the aim to take more action to make a difference, we believe our actions will inspire others to make a positive and lasting impact. At Eversa, we’re a team working to create the world of our dreams so we can speed up the participation of Deaf and hard of hearing people in all communities.

We develop and nurture ongoing relationships with members of Indigenous communities and other neighbouring communities so we can fully contribute to changing our societies and make them accessible to all. 

Eversa acknowledges that our offices in Ottawa and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal are located on the unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin and Tiohtià:ke Nations. We also acknowledge the many diverse Indigenous peoples, Inuit and Métis who live and work on these territories.

We are grateful for the land on which we gather and honour our responsibility to this place we call home, both for today and for future generations. Eversa also recognizes the historical oppression exerted on these territories, cultures and Indigenous peoples. We believe that our achievements contribute to the process of healing and decolonization that we pursue together. 

We want to help as an ally, by respecting and honouring through our expertise and by working hand in hand to improve accessibility for all Deaf and hard of hearing people.

This land acknowledgment was guided by Dominique Ireland, member of the Indigenous community, and we would like to thank her for her generosity and collaboration.
