Description

Trailhead Indigenous - Mississauga: Hosted in partnership with Credit Valley Conservation.

CVC and the CVTIRT will focus on trails and how trail projects can move us forward on reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, discussing how trail initiatives help strengthen relationships between Canada's Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and the importance of integrating traditional culture and knowledge into trail planning and trail experiences.

Background:

For the benefit of present and future generations, Credit Valley Conservation, working with municipal, Indigenous and community partners, is creating a 100-kilometre continuous, connected river valley trail from the headwaters in Orangeville through Caledon, Halton Hills, Brampton to the shore of Lake Ontario in Mississauga.

The CVT will have long-lasting impacts for generations to come, providing an opportunity for people to see and experience the Credit River from vantage points previously reserved for those who dared to venture into the wilds of the valley. Immersed in this new experience, people will be inspired by natural wonders, feel connected to our shared history and will grow more aware of the life sustaining Credit River Watershed

The Credit Valley Trail Indigenous Roundtable (CVTIRT) formed in the early phases of the project, rightfully involving Indigenous communities (Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Six Nations of the Grand River, the Huron-Wendat First Nation, the Credit River Métis Council and the Sacred Water Circle in Peterborough) with work connected to their ancesteral past. The CVTIRT has developed an Indigenous Experience Plan (IEP) to help guide the Indigenous elements of the trail, ensuring that all planning is done in a way that values and honors the sacred, sustaining waters of the Credit River. Some of the key activities that have emerged from the IEP create a path towards reconciliation with Indigenous communities.

An official Trailhead Ontario Event.
