Welcome to New Leaf!
New Leaf is a place to live and work. Based around a 112-acre working farm, the individuals we care for enjoy the benefits of rural living while being supported in their efforts to be recognized as valuable members of their community. Respecting that each person is unique and deserves to recognize their own potential, New Leaf cultivates community partnerships to enhance the lives of the people we support, their family members and the community around us. Together, we grow and adapt to the challenges we face in our changing world.
New Leaf: Living and Learning Together Inc. (New Leaf) unites to honour and offer tribute to all Indigenous Peoples of this territory.
As the original occupants, we thank you for your traditional and contemporary enduring stewardship, care and reverence of this land. We understand that it is our shared responsibility to cherish, respect, and sustain the spaces where we gather and where our homes are built.
Together we share in values of self-expression, individuality, choice, freedom to be who we are, and to uphold human rights for all.
New Leaf maintains many homes across York Region and is located on the traditional territory of many First Nations peoples. York Region falls under Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Williams Treaties with several Mississauga and Chippewas First Nations. There remain areas of York Region where land claims and treaty rights have yet to be resolved.
As we discover truths, we seek knowledge and direction from Indigenous Peoples. With respect and honesty to all generations, we seek to learn and grow together.
