Our Land Acknowledgement for Bereavement Ontario Network:

Bereavement Ontario Network recognizes that it’s work, and the work of it’s community partners take place on the traditional Indigenous territories across the province.

We acknowledge that there are 46 treaties and other agreements that cover the territory now called Ontario.

We are thankful to the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people who have cared for these territories since time immemorial and who continue to contribute to the strength of Ontario and to all communities across the province.

Bereavement Ontario Network is honoured to collaborate with Indigenous clients, stakeholders and communities throughout the various territories.

Acknowledging traditional Indigenous territories is one way to recognize contemporary and historical Indigenous presence and land rights. It is a small step towards dismantling the continued impacts of colonialism and undoing Indigenous erasure in our everyday lives.
