Land Acknowledgment
Brightshores Health System is situated on the traditional territory of the Nawash and Saugeen Nations, a place that has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst many First Nations including the Iroquois Confederacy, Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinabek.

Brightshores recognizes and respects the Anishinabek as the traditional custodians of the lands and water. We are committed to supporting the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee Peoples, among other First Nations, Inuit, Métis, and Indigenous Peoples globally.
