We are a Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Charter Community Council created in 2004.

We invite the MNO Oshawa and Durham Region Community, Métis, Indigenous and non-Indigenous People of all ages to participate with us in the celebration of our Métis history, values, culture, and languages which form our proud heritage.

Our council stands committed to enhancing community development, the academic success of our youth, the promotion of artistic and cultural achievements along with exercising our treaty rights under the constitution.

Together with our community partners, friends, the support of the MNO and co-council, we strive to provide community programs, outreach and cultural development.
