Inviting All MNO Citizens to Community Information and Engagement Sessions Re: the MNO Registry Review Report

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) is inviting all Citizens to participate in a series of online information and consultation meetings that will be held throughout 2021 on the recently released MNO Registry Review Final Report.

In October 2017, the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario (PCMNO) directed that an independent review of the MNO Registry be undertaken in order to better understand the completeness of the citizenship files of all Citizens as well as to prepare for future self-government and rights-related negotiations with Canada and Ontario.

A copy of the final Report along with other information about the Registry Review, is now available here:

The results of the Registry Review shows that an overwhelming percentage of Citizens (over 19,149 Citizens as of July 31, 2021) have “Complete” MNO Registry files. The Registry Review also details what Métis communities those Citizens with “Complete” citizenship files ancestrally connect to within Ontario as well as Western Canada.

The PCMNO has now directed that province-wide consultations be undertaken on the results of the Registry Review in order to determine what the MNO should do next. Flowing from these consultations, a “What We Heard” report will be prepared and a future province-wide vote or MNO assembly will determine what the MNO does next.

In addition, further meetings will be scheduled throughout 2021 based on requests from specific MNO Regions, Community Councils or constituencies. If you have suggestions for future information or consultation sessions please email

The MNO Registry Review is an important milestone in the MNO’s ongoing journey to advance Métis rights and to advance our nation-to-nation, government-to-government relationships with Canada and Ontario. We need to hear from all Citizens on these issues! You voice matters and should be heard!

Please take the time to register and participate in the next two sessions (information below).
