Land acknowledgement

QuitNow serves the entire province of British Columbia, spanning lands that are built on a complex history of colonization. These lands have belonged to diverse First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities since time immemorial.  

We recognize and respect the Indigenous peoples as stewards of the traditional and ancestral lands on which QuitNow provides services. We acknowledge that our office is located on the unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are grateful for the privilege to work on these lands and are committed to reflecting on how we continue to contribute to and benefit from the displacement of First Nations, Metis and Inuit Peoples and working toward reconciliation.

We acknowledge that tobacco is considered a sacred medicine used in ritual, ceremony, and prayer for many First Nations communities. At QuitNow, our work treats only the use of commercial, non-traditional tobacco. Any reference to tobacco in our program refers only to commercial tobacco. We are committed to working with Indigenous communities and organizations on commercial tobacco cessation. For Indigenous-specific support with quitting commercial tobacco, visit Talk Tobacco.
