Green Venture empowers Hamiltonians to implement greener practices in their homes and communities to make our city a climate champion.

Land Acknowledgement

Green Venture recognizes that EcoHouse is situated on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, and Attawandaron nations, within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement.  We acknowledge that Green Venture is also part of this agreement and are committed to being stewards of the land. 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 peoples – including the Métis and Inuit – from across Turtle Island (North America). We are committed to reconciliation and protecting the land for those who will inherit it. 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.
