Land Acknowledgement

South Okanagan Immigrant & Community Services (SOICS) acknowledges that the South Okanagan-Similkameen is the traditional, ancestral and stolen territory of the syilx people of the Okanagan Nation. We are grateful to the syilx people who have always cared for these lands, water, and air and continue to do so today.

This land acknowledgement is just a first step on our journey of learning the truth and working towards reconciliation.
