Land Acknowledgement: From the Anishnaabe to the Attawandaron, Haudenosaunee and the M’etis, these treaty lands are steeped in rich indigenous history and modern traditions.  As a community, we have the responsibility to honour and respect the four directions, land, water, plants, animals, and ancestors. Today, this area is home to many indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island.  We acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit on whose territory the Ignatius Jesuit Centre sits.

Ignatius Jesuit Centre is located on Hwy. 6 north just minutes from downtown Guelph. The land consists of a 600-acre green belt stretching from the Guelph Lake Conservation Area to the Guelph-Elora Trail.

The landscape is comprised of farmland, wetland and woodland areas, formal gardens, naturalized landscapes, walking trails and various buildings.

Life at the Centre is influenced by the diverse use of the land: Loyola House Retreat & Training Centre, Ignatius Farm, Ignatius Old-Growth Forest, a Jesuit cemetery, and Orchard Park Office Centre.
