The Wedding Ring recognizes that its work and events take place on traditional Indigenous territories across the province now called Ontario. There are 46 treaties and other agreements that cover this territory. We are grateful to the more than 120 First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities 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. We are grateful to be able to work and live in these beautiful territories.
We are dedicated to honouring Indigenous history and culture and recognize the enduring presence of Indigenous peoples on this land. We recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers of the land.
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.
The Wedding Ring is also working towards more sustainable wedding expos and reducing our ecological impact in our day-to-day work to help product this beautiful land. We support indigenous-owned businesses in both our personal and business needs. And we are working to increase representation of indigenous-owned businesses online at TheWeddingRing.ca, in print in The Wedding Ring Magazine and in person at The Ring’s Wedding Expos.
We are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nations, Métis, and Inuit People.
