For more than 15,000 years, the First Nations walked on and cared for the lands that we now call home, here in the Southern Georgian Bay Area. The Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Ojibwe, and many others, lived here as families, friends, and communities, the way we are today.

The PROBUS Club of Blue Mountain acknowledges the Lake Simcoe-Nottawasaga Treaty of 1818 and the relationship it establishes with the original inhabitants of Turtle Island. We acknowledge the reality of our shared history, and the current contributions of Indigenous people within our community. We seek to continue empowering expressions of pride amongst all of the diverse stakeholders in this area, and we seek to do better, and to continue to recognize, learn and grow, in friendship and community, Nation to Nation.
