Ontario is home to large and diverse Indigenous population and cultures. Through its work, RPCO members practice territorial land acknowledgements to demonstrate our respect for founding Indigenous Peoples and gratitude to do our work on this land. Members also recognize the unique relationship between Indigenous People and their traditional territories. We actively engage Indigenous People in community initiatives, and we are grateful for the time given by so many people to share their knowledge, traditions and beliefs with us.
Members of RPCO remain committed to building and improving our relations with Indigenous People. We seek to work toward a shared goal of supporting a healthy natural environment and a rich cultural heritage.
