The sunrise ceremony, conducted by Elder Garry Sault, begins at 7:30 am to mark the beginning of Massey College’s special partnership with the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. The ceremony will take place in the presence of The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. A tour follows of the revisioned Chapel Royal, which includes themed commissions of a mural by artist Philip Cote and windows by glass artist Sarah Hall. The partnership arose from the designation of the Chapel Royal by the Queen on National Aboriginal Day.
