Village at Griesbach is getting ready to grow, again! The well-situated and master-planned community of Village at Griesbach will be welcoming a new mix of housing styles, parks, open spaces and amenities. Growing Griesbach has begun a conversation with current residents, Indigenous communities, stakeholders and the general public about the exciting opportunity. As the project continues to grow and develop new phases, our goal is to keep Village at Griesbach the new community of choice in north Edmonton.
Village at Griesabch acknowledges the traditional land on which we reside is in Treaty Six Territory.
We would like to thank the diverse Indigenous Peoples whose ancestors’ footsteps have marked this territory for centuries, such as nêhiyaw (Nay-hee-yow) / Cree, Dené (Deh-neyh), Anishinaabe (Ah-nish-in-ah-bay) / Saulteaux (So-toe), Nakota Isga (Na-koh-tah ee-ska) / Nakota Sioux (Na-koh-tah sue), and Niitsitapi (Nit-si-tahp-ee) / Blackfoot peoples. We also acknowledge this as the Métis’ (May-tee) homeland and the home of one of the largest communities of Inuit south of the 60th parallel. It is a welcoming place for all peoples who come from around the world to share Edmonton as a home. Together we call upon all of our collective, honoured traditions and spirits to work in building a great city for today and future generations.
