Climb On Equipment acknowledges that it is situated on the unceded traditional territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nation.
Our company is located in the unceded1 and ancestral territory of the Coast Salish and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples – the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations – and has been stewarded by them since time immemorial. We respectfully, and whole-heartedly acknowledge this. We thank you and will continue to respect and honour the tradition of land acknowledgment that dates back centuries for indigenous people. We also offer our support to future generations.

1The term “unceded” acknowledges the dispossession of the land and the inherent rights that Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh hold to the territory. The term serves as a reminder that Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh have never left their territories and will always retain their jurisdiction and relationships with the territory. vancouver.ca/people-programs/land-acknowledgement.aspx
