With gratitude, we acknowledge that the UBC Department of Family Practice —encompassing our programs, faculty, learners and staff—is located on traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of Indigenous peoples—including First Nations, Métis and Inuit—around the province now known as British Columbia. In our work within the Department, we all have a responsibility to disrupt, dismantle and decolonize in order to unravel the ways in which settlers have exercised and continue to exercise their power and privilege with consequent impacts on First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. We acknowledge the ongoing consequences of colonization and strive to support reconciliation within our department.
