Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta supports children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional or learning challenges through education, advocacy, and community outreach.
How We Help
We believe that barriers can be removed through education, increased awareness and creating environments of acceptance, understanding, and celebration of differences.
In the spirit of respect and truth, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta wishes to take a step towards reconciliation by acknowledging traditional treaty land where we work and operate our programs in.
We acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Six Regions of the Métis Nation of Alberta within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
