At Welcome Cannabis we are committed to continuously reflecting on how we can better support our community and provide safe and healthy cannabis retail spaces for all people. 

On this last day of Indigenous History month – and year-round – we aim to acknowledge and respect Indigenous Peoples and their vast contributions – past, present and future – to shape Canada and our world. This month is a time for all Canadians to learn about, appreciate and acknowledge these immense contributions. 

We recognize that all non-Indigenous people must work to develop fair and respectful relationships with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis People. These communities deserve equal access to education, health care, economic development, politics, housing, food, clean water, and environmental protection. We are determined to travel this path with our community. 

Our love and respect goes out to all Indigenous Peoples on Turtle Island. We offer our sincere condolences during this time of mourning for all the lost children and survivors of residential schools enduring the lasting pain of genocide. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous communities in our commitment to continue to listen, learn, support and honour your voices and resilience.

We believe it is essential for everyone to learn about Indigenous history and culture; the impacts of colonialism, racism and violence towards Indigenous communities; and the strength and resilience of Indigenous communities in Canada and around the world. We all must work towards reconciliation and decolonization to build a future based on equity, fairness and inclusion for all Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

We would like to acknowledge that our Welcome Cannabis stores and the production of many of the products we sell are on stolen lands.
