Land Acknowledgement

The AFC is a national charity that serves people working in the entertainment industry from across the northern part of Turtle Island, colonially known as Canada. Our offices are in T’karonto, the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, the Chippewa, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. As a result of being settled here, we are included in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty, which has three guiding principles that teach us how we all can live and thrive together on these lands:

  1. Take only what you need.
  2. Leave some for everybody else.
  3. Keep it clean.

The Dish with One Spoon Treaty is an important reminder of our responsibility to the community. As we serve and support entertainment industry members on Turtle Island, our aim is to ensure that everyone has what they need, including their health, dignity, and ability to work.
