The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) High Land Waters Métis Council participated in the two-day Governance and Finance Training session in Kingston from November 21 to 22.

The training was facilitated by Glen Lipinski, MNO Community Relations Coordinator, and Hank Rowlinson, MNO Manager of Community Relations.

The two-day training focused on Governance and began with a “Métis 101.” Additional topics covered included visioning, challenges, opportunities and planning for Councils. Lipinski also concentrated on Finance and the New Relationship Fund. They delivered sessions focusing on policies, procedures, aspects of budgeting and general reporting.

In attendance from the MNO High Land Waters Métis Council region were Candace Lloyd, Gwendalyn Lloyd-Gomez, Trudy Conner and her husband Jim, Robert Lloyd, Marlon Lloyd and Scott Lloyd.

While MNO Governance and Finance Training sessions are offered to specific community councils but there are occasions when there are openings to allow additional MNO representatives or citizens to participate and bring the knowledge to their regions. At this training, Pearl Gabona, the MNO Women’s Secretariat Representative for Region 5 and 8, and MNO citizen Ralph Wolf Thistle both travelled to Kingston at their own expense to attend the training session.
