About Belleville

Tsyohnà:wate (Belleville) is located on the territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, and the Haudenosaunee people. The City shares the shorelines of the magnificent Bay of Quinte with Kenhtè:ke (Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory). We acknowledge our shared obligation to respect and honour the land on which we live and grow.
