Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario (PCMNO)
COVID-19 has added unique challenges to MNO Election 2020, particularly related to the ability for voters to learn about candidates and their platforms.As such, as Chief Electoral Officer I made the recommendation to waive the Article 7 prohibition of using the MNO webpage to post candidate information. In order to allow candidates to share information about themselves and their platforms in a way that is fair and equitable, while not required, each candidate was offered the opportunity to post one photo and 500 words about themselves and their campaign on MNO’s website. Further submissions will be posted as they are received.

* Please note that as per Article 19.4 of the MNO Electoral Code: Part A the order of Candidates’ names on the Ballot is determined by the Chief Electoral Officer putting names in a container and drawing them in in front of witnesses.
For those positions that have no candidates listed above, either a candidate has been acclaimed, or no one was nominated to run for the position. Acclamations (where only one Candidate was nominated for a position) will be announced by the Chief Electoral Officer on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at www.metisnation.org/election.
