The Paprika community is committed to the ongoing and complex journey of the constant work of shifting perspectives and practices. We operate from offices, houses, apartments, and coffee shops across the city of Tkaronto (Toronto) and beyond. We are so grateful to call this land home. We acknowledge the ancestral lands and waterways of the Anishinaabe (Mississaugas of Credit First Nation), Haudenosaunee Peoples from the Six Nations Confederacy of the Grand River, Wendat and any other Nations who cared for the land. Acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded. Past, present and future.
