This event, hosted by the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) and the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC), will bring together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal decision makers from across the local community to identify wise practices in the field of urban Aboriginal partnerships, networking and community development.

The gathering will provide your organization with an opportunity to provide input into the development of the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs (MAA) Urban Aboriginal Action Plan, which is currently being implemented over the next two years.

The Urban Aboriginal Action Plan will inform urban Aboriginal provincial policy development going forward and will have a wide reaching impact for all stakeholders that have an interest in improving the socio-economic outcomes for urban and Aboriginal community across Ontario.

Lunch will also be provided and a traditional opening will be facilitated by a local community Elder/Senator.

Please RSVP to to confirm your attendance. Should you have any other questions, please contact Ginny Gonneau at
