Rails End Gallery and Arts Centre is located in the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe Mississauga. Haliburton County is covered by the Williams Treaties signed with the Mississauga and Chippewa Nations. The intent and spirit of these treaties form the legal basis of Canada, binding us to share the land “for as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the rivers flow.” We are grateful for the opportunity to live and work here and to thank all the generations of Metis, Inuit and other Indigenous peoples who have taken care of this land for thousands of years. We deeply appreciate the historic connection of Williams Treaties First Nations to this place, and we recognize that they will continue to be the stewards and caretakers of these lands and water in perpetuity. By learning, understanding, and acknowledging, we wish to pay respect to Turtle Island, Mother Earth, and to the rich Indigenous history of Ontario.
Most of our programs are OFFERED WITHOUT CHARGE thanks to generous donors and volunteers. Please consider making a donation if you are able.
Please follow COVID protocols when participating; maintain 2 m distance, wear a mask when this is not possible and be mindful of others in the group
