On August 10, 2016, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Kenora Métis Council President Joel Henley and PCMNO Region 1 Councillor Theresa Stenlund attended a reception hosted by the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) in Kenora.

At the reception, they had the opportunity to meet with the Honourable Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario, and the Honourable Michael Gravelle, Minister of Northern Development and Mines, and NOHFC Chair. During the evening, Premier Wynne highlighted the government’s support for building and growing the economy in northern Ontario. Established in 1988, the NOHFC works to build strong, prosperous northern communities.

Premier Wynne’s visit to Kenora is a part of her seven day tour of northern Ontario where she will listen to local ideas and will highlight how the government is supporting economic growth and job creation in the north. Premier Wynne was just in Fort Frances on August 9 where she attended a meet and greet with the MNO Sunset Country Métis Council and MNO citizens.
