74 Gervais Drive
Toronto, Ontario, M3C 1Z3
We acknowledge that the land on which OCLS’s offices are located is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. This territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto (from the Haudenosaunee word Tkaronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory.
*NB: It can be difficult to find 74 Gervais for the first time as there is no visable sign at the street. Turn up the driveway indicated for 72 Gervais and you will see our corporate logo at our entrance on the left.
