Applying to MNO Early Learning and Child Care
programs is now easier than ever

We’ve got some exciting news to share about the Métis Nation of Ontario’s (MNO) Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) programs. We’ve made some changes to the application process for 2024-25 to serve you and your family better.

We’ve got four amazing programs available:

      • the Extra Curricular program;
      • the Christmas program;
      • the Back-to-School Backpack program; and
      • early learning kits

These programs are here to support you and your family, and we want to make sure they’re accessible to everyone.

You can apply to one, two, three, or all four programs, depending on what your family needs. Once you’ve applied during the One Application period, our ELCC team will check if you’re eligible and figure out how much funding you’ll get based on the overall numbers of children applying.

Mark your calendars! The One Application period is happening from March 4, 2024, to April 26, 2024. During this time, you can fill out the One Application to let us know which programs you’re interested in.

If you want more details about each program or how to apply, you can find all the info on our MNO website and in the application itself.

We’re here to support you every step of the way, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Please contact for more information and include the region you live in.

Let’s make sure these programs work for all Métis families together!

Families will be required to provide information regarding their eligibility for the program, including citizenship and information for all children they believe are eligible.

Families will be advised what programs they are eligible for by June 1, 2024.  

Families who DO NOT complete a pre-application by April 26, 2024, will be placed on a waitlist.
