Last year the MNO developed a successful DVD that featured Métis youth discussing gambling and related issues and how it has affected their lives.

This year we are looking for people to come forward to share their stories on the effects of Gambling on the Family, including ‘Inter-generational’ gambling (example: Grandparent, parent, and child that have experienced impacts of gambling.) Your shared experiences, positive and negative will assist us with the development of new “Métis Family & Responsible Gambling” DVD.

If you have a story on how gambling has made an impact on your family (positive, negative or both) please contact our Provincial Responsible Gambling Coordinator, Loma Rowlinson at or call the MNO Head office in Ottawa 613-798-14788 Ext. 150.

It is through experiences shared that we teach others and can support one another. Deadline for those interested is February 16th, 2010. Please share this email with other Métis in your community and encourage people to participate. Many thanks in advance for your support in making our Responsible Gambling program a success.
