Congress 2022

Land acknowledgement

Congress 2022 will take place virtually from May 12 to 20, 2022. Check back soon for more event details. 

Land acknowledgement 

Congress events will include participants and audience members from various ancestral homelands across Canada and, indeed, around the world. This interactive map will allow you to understand the land on which you are situated. The map was produced by Native Land Digital, an Indigenous-led not-for-profit organization. This map is not to be used as an academic or legal resource, and should be used with an understanding that areas may be incorrect to local nations and individual interpretation. 

We extend our respect to all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples for their valuable contributions, past and present.

Read the Federation’s land acknowledgement.  


Congress is brought to life by a team of over 100 individuals, including Federation staff and board members, Program Chairs and Local Arrangement Coordinators, and partners. 

Check back soon to learn more about the Congress team.


The Federation is committed to a theme centred on equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization, and on Black and Indigenous experience and scholarship in Canada. More information coming soon.
