Land Acknowledgement 

The Ontario Beef Research Centre – Elora resides on the Crown Grant to the Six Nations or the Haldimand Tract (Treaty 4). These lands are shared by the Anishinabewaki, Mississauga, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Attiwonderonk, and Ho-de-no-sau-nee-ga traditional territories. The historical treaties acknowledge the land six miles on either side of the Grand River as land shared by the Six Nations. As researchers, we offer our sincere respect to the Indigenous peoples who historically and currently reside on these lands. Through our research, we commit to nurturing the land and aim to continually improve our practices through this research to increase sustainability and welfare in the agriculture industry.  

Much of the beef research from the University of Guelph happens in labs on campus as well. This campus resides on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit and recognizes the Dish with One Spoon Covenant, advocating for peaceful coexistence, resource sharing, and mutual responsibility. This space where we work and learn is home to many past, present, and future First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. Our community of researchers is committed to continued learning and hope to use our research to improve life through creating better, more sustainable practices for the beef industry. 


The University of Guelph is located at 50 Stone Road East, Guelph, Ontario Canada.
