The JDC West 2023 Competition is situated on Treaty Six Territory: traditional lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dene, Stoney, Nakota, Dakota, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes that were and continued to be done towards Indigenous peoples and communities. As business professionals, we dedicate ourselves to learning and celebrating Indigenous history, culture, and achievements so that we can have a reaffirmed relationship with the Indigenous community through decolonization, reconciliation, and collaboration.
