VON Durham Hospice Services serves all of the residents of Durham Region with respect and dignity. We respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we serve and operate on is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, which is home to many First Nation, Inuit, and Métis People. We are a team that is committed to learning, understanding, and acknowledging the colonialist history faced by Indigenous peoples and the impact this history has today. We aim to provide culturally safe and anti-bias approaches to hospice palliative care across our team’s disciplines.
