Including land acknowledgements in your publications:

Silva21 encourages its highly qualified personnel (HQPs), partners and community members to include land acknowledgements of Indigenous people on lands in which field research, collaborations and writing took place. 


If you are a Silva21 member working at one of our partner universities, you can find a link to your university’s official land acknowledgement on our website. If your institution is not on this list, we invite you to visit to explore the Indigenous territories, languages and treaties of your area. 


Here is an example of an acknowledgement statement in a recent Silva21 publication: 

Research and writing for this publication took place at the University of British Columbia Vancouver campus, on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. The authors would like to thank the Musqueam people who, for millennia, have taken care of the land on which we live, work and play and have passed their culture, history and traditions from one generation to the next. - Wotherspoon et al. (2023)

Funding recognition

All Silva21 HQPs should include acknowledgement of Silva21 funding in their publications. It should be mentioned that Silva21 is an NSERC Alliance grant (Grant number 556265-20).


Example: This research was funded by Silva21, a NSERC Alliance research program (NSERC ALLRP 556265-20) led by Alexis Achim (Université Laval, Québec)
