We acknowledge that the land upon which we gather is in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This land is governed by the Treaties of Peace and Friendship. We pay our respects to the Indigenous Mi’Kma’ki People who have occupied this land for over 12,000 years; past, present, and future.  We also recognize the 400+ year history of communities of African descent and the 50 African Nova Scotian communities throughout the region today.

Each immerging issue within the sector was met with a proactive and strategic approach that continuously guides us through the new era of long-term care. Dykeland Lodge is honoured to be part of a progressive Association.”
