We acknowledge

UBC and the School of Community and Regional Planning are situated on the traditional ancestral and unceded territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.
We recognize this acknowledgement is only the beginning of our due diligence, and that our commitment is shown in our actions rather than our affirmations.
