Land Acknowledgement

The shared Nipissing University and Canadore College campus sits on the territory of Nipissing First Nation, the territory of the Anishnabek, within lands protected by the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850. We are grateful to be able to live and learn on these lands with all our relations. 



To find materials specific to treaties and treaty relationships try looking up the name of the treaty in the Library collections using the Nipissing Library Search or Canadore Library Search, or the names of the parties to the treaty as title keywords.

Try for example:

  • Basic search: Treaty 8
  • Basic search: Cree and treaty 
  • Advanced search: Title: Treaty No. 9
