In the interest of our collective health and well-being, most PEYA workshops and events will be facilitated virtually. Some in-person activities will be planned for the 2021-2022 academic year in accordance with public health recommendations.

Our Organization’s Approach
Our Commitment to Sustainability
- All PEYA printed content is done using Forest Stewardship Certified (FSC) paper
- All registration for programs and events is done electronically
- PEYA Executive Committee meetings are paperless as members use electronic devices
- All food served at our events is either vegetarian or vegan and we attempt to use local ingredients whenever possible
- Where possible, events will have three streams of waste disposal (organic, recycling and garbage)
- All PEYA t-shirts provided to students and teachers are 100% certified organic cotton
- PEYA favours vendors who also work towards environmental sustainability
In the Region of Peel, we live and work on the traditional territory and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We would like to acknowledge the first inhabitants of these lands and those who continue to live in these regions, including the Anishinabek, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Ojibway/Chippewa and Métis peoples. We occupy colonized First Nation territories and it is our responsibility to recognize our colonial histories, their present-day implications, and to work together to honour, protect and sustain Indigenous rights, and this land.
