As a gesture of respect and a nod to a lesser known part of our local and regional history we wish to acknowledge the lands upon which we live, work and play. These lands in the Port Perry/Lake Scugog area are Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation traditional and treaty lands, located on the eastern extremity of the historic Western Hunting Grounds, and today constitute Treaty #20 and Williams Treaties Clause #2 lands, the former signed in 1818 and the latter in 1923. As one of the original peoples, let us be reminded of the lands and water upon which the Mississaugas have lived, utilized and cared for, generation upon generation.

Theatre on the Ridge continues to take deliberate action to eliminate systemic racism and discrimination within our theatre community.
