District 48 Leeds and Grenville was formed in 2011. Our members include those who work in and retire from education – including child care and early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary, private schools and more. We play a key role in helping members stay active and connected – with each other and the community.
District 48 is situated on the ancestral traditional territories of the Anishinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), Oneida and Haudenosaunee (St. Lawrence Iroquois) peoples. We recognize that this territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.
District 48 Leeds and Grenville recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commits to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all.
We invite our members to reflect the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
