The City of Hamilton is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. This land is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
Today, the City of Hamilton is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) and we recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers.
The Healthy Families Division (of Hamilton Public Health Services) promotes health and well-being of children, youth, and families through Public Health programs, children's mental health services, education, and research.
The City of Hamilton staff departments will ensure that inclusive methods of communications will be made available to persons who have disabilities and ensure that they are adapted, where possible, to take into account a person’s disability. Documents will be made available, on request. If you require this support, please private message Healthy Families Hamilton.
