Land Acknowledgement

We recognize that Bereaved Families of Ontario Southwest Region operates on the traditional lands of the Attawandaron, Anishinabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Lunaapeewak peoples, who have long-standing connections to the land, water, and region of Southwestern Ontario. This area is home to the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames First Nation, and Munsee-Delaware Nation.

We deeply value the significant contributions of local and regional First Nations of Turtle Island, both historically and in the present.

We acknowledge the historic and ongoing injustices faced by Indigenous peoples in Canada and affirm our commitment to honouring Indigenous voices, nations, and cultures, while moving forward in a spirit of reconciliation and respect.
