CMHA Ottawa is located on the unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation. We recognize the Anishinaabe people as the customary keepers and defenders of the land now known as Ottawa. We are grateful to live and work on the unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation.
