Town of Jasper Land Acknowledgement 

 The Municipality of Jasper respects and acknowledges that the present-day Municipality of Jasper sits on the ancestral and Traditional Territories of Indigenous Peoples. Through the use of a territorial acknowledgement, the Municipality of Jasper:

  • honours the relationship between this land and the Indigenous Peoples that were present and thrived in this area since time immemorial; 
  • acknowledges the past and ongoing impacts of the colonization of Indigenous Peoples and lands;
  • recognizes the present-day relationship Indigenous Peoples have with this area; and
  • commits to ongoing reconciliation efforts in partnership with those whose Traditional Territory the Municipality of Jasper occupies.
