At the 2017 Annual General Assembly, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Youth Council announced the creation of the Grassroots Grants Program. This exciting initiative is part of the MNO Youth Council’s ongoing commitment to supporting the immense creative potential of Métis Youth across the province and is designed to challenge Ontario’s Métis Youth Community to develop new and innovative approaches to community building in their local areas.

The program will provide up to $500 to Ontario Métis youth-led, youth-focused initiatives in one of two priority areas: Youth Engagement and Empowerment or Métis Arts, Language and Culture.

Applications are now being accepted and will be funded on a priority basis, as funding becomes available.
