1. Call to Order

  • Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the work of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health operates on the traditional lands and home of the Hodinöhsö:ni’, Anishinaabek, Tionontati, and Attawandaron people and is steeped in the tradition of many First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people.
As an Agency, we encourage our staff, partners, and clients to support the work of reconciliation and promote healing with our indigenous neighbours.
We are also committed to reducing social inequities and will strive to make our services culturally appropriate and safe for all Indigenous people, their families, and their community.
