In her first official event as lieutenant-governor of Ontario, Edith Dumont paid a visit to Massey College at the University of Toronto to attend a ceremony honouring the enduring treaty relationship between Indigenous Peoples and the Crown.
Following her installation as the province’s 30th lieutenant-governor Tuesday, Dumont headed to Massey’s Chapel Royal – one of three Chapels Royal in Canada, and the only one with its own title in an Indigenous language: Gi-Chi-Twaa Gimaa Nini Mississauga Anishinaabek AName Amik (The King’s Anishinaabek Sacred Place).
Joined by her husband and children, Dumont took part in an outdoor ceremony before making her way inside for a viewing of the chapel with Indigenous leaders.
