In 1805, Tkaranto (Toronto) was surrendered through the Toronto Purchase (Treaty 13A) with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. OCAD University is situated here, at the heart of the nation's art, design, business and new media capital, on the ancestral and traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-Wendat — the original owners and custodians of the land on which we stand.
Tkaranto (Toronto) is home now to many First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples. We welcome you to research and learn more about the land you are on. Whose Land and Native Land are great places to begin.
