About Us


Formed in 1985, the Guild exists to promote handbell ringing in Ontario. The Guild’s objectives are to bring handbell ringers in contact with each other for the purpose of exchanging ideas, to assist newly-formed choirs, to provide a forum for discussion, and the practical advancement of the Art of Handbell Ringing.

The Guild is organized into 8 areas, each with an Area Representative. We organize annual workshops and a biennial festival that usually attracts over 500 ringers! We promote groups’ concerts and encourage new opportunities to showcase handbells to new audiences.

Mission Statement

We are the voice of the handbell community in Ontario, fostering growth through relationships, education and awareness.

Vision Statement

By 2021, we will foster dynamic membership engagement and provide inspiring ringer and director development within the Ontario handbell community.
