Do you think you or someone close to you might be in an abusive relationship?

We would like to begin by acknowledging that we are on Unama’ki (Cape Breton Island), the Land of Fog, part of the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

Our programs are funded in part by donors like you. Support our work by making a donation to the Leeside Society today.
