    MTL Detours acknowledges that their tours take place on the unceded Indigenous territory of Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal). This area has long been a traditional meeting and exchange site for many First Nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation (Mohawk) as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather. MTL Detours is thankful to give walking tours here, is dedicated to ongoing learning and strives to operate in a respectful, accurate and honorable manner.
