The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans’ Council attended the annual meeting of the National Council of Veteran Associations (NCVA) in November 2015, where veteran organizations are given a chance to put together a legislative program to be brought to the federal government’s attention.

The MNO Veterans’ Council has been a member of good standing with the NCVA for six years. MNO Veterans’ Council representatives attend the annual meeting every year in Toronto to ensure that Métis veterans have a voice at the federal level. The representatives’ visibility and input are vital towards keeping a Métis presence at the meeting.

The NCVA advocates for over 60 different veteran organizations.
