Established in 2001 at the direction of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) at their Annual General Meeting, the MNO Veterans’ Council represents the interests of Métis veterans within the MNO’s governance structure. MNO Veterans’ Council’s concerns and issues are brought to the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario (PCMNO) by Regional Councillors and Senators.
The MNO Veteran Council’s structure was formalized at the 2009 Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Sudbury with the election of an executive. Elections for the MNO Veterans’ Council are held every four years in conjunction with general MNO elections.

To apply for membership in the Métis Veteran’s Council, MNO citizens can complete and sign the application for Métis Veterans Council Membership and send it and substantiating documents verifying military service to the council at email@example.com. The MNO Veterans Council reviews all applications. Once approved, the Council will inform the applicant, and alert the MNO Registry so that the applicant’s citizenship record can be updated to reflect MNO Veteran Status.
