30th Annual General Assembly of the Métis Nation of Ontario
August 17 to 20, 2023 • Westin Hotel • Ottawa

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Annual General Assembly (AGA) is Métis self-government in action. Every year, MNO leadership and citizens from Métis communities across Ontario gather to make their voices heard, review the successes of the past year, and set a course for the coming year.

We encourage you to Save the Date as the MNO’s 30th AGA will be one you don’t want to miss! AGA business meetings are planned to take place in Ottawa, Ontario from August 18 to 20, 2023 – and don’t forget the President’s Welcome and Canoe Arrival is on the evening of August 17, 2023.

The venue for the AGA will be the Westin Hotel, located at 11 Colonel By Drive in Ottawa steps away from downtown attractions. 

This year we would be particularly pleased to have you join our celebrations as we are marking two special Anniversaries in 2023 — the 30th anniversary of the Métis Nation of Ontario and the 20th anniversary of the landmark Métis rights decision in R v. Powley.

Watch the MNO website and social media for more information coming soon.
