Acknowledgments and references

Traditional land acknowledgement

We respectfully acknowledge that UNB stands on the unsurrendered and unceded traditional Wolastoqey (WOOL-US-TOOK-WAY) land.

The lands of Wabanaki (WAH-BAH-NAH-KEE) people are recognized in a series of Peace and Friendship Treaties to establish an ongoing relationship of peace, friendship and mutual respect between equal nations.

The river that connects our two campuses is known as Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK), along which live Wolastoqiyik (WOOL-US-TOO-GWEEG) – the people of the beautiful and bountiful river. Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK) is also called the St. John River.


UNB Sustainability says a special thanks to the Environmental Trust Fund for partially funding all three phases of this project. Additionally, we thank the Climate Change Action Plan Committee and all task force members who provided their expertise and helped guide this project to completion.

Finally, we thank both the Fredericton and Saint John communities for providing us with feedback along the way that ultimately lead to the creation of the targets and strategies within this plan.
