Happy Pride Month 2024

In June, we celebrate PRIDE month in Canada, honouring the many contributions of our Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ community members. The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) embraces the values and traditions of our ancestors, as expressed in our Statement of Prime Purpose, and takes pride in our rich heritage.

Our ancestors’ acceptance of diverse gender identities and expressions ensured everyone had a place in our circle, which was founded on principles of inclusion and kindness. Embracing all community members regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity, they recognized that all had a place in our society.

Today, the MNO maintains its commitment to freedom, fairness, equality, generosity, and justice for our people. Above all, we value harmony and peace. Our Métis community is made up of many voices, and our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.

This month, let us be proud.

Together, we can create a more inclusive and compassionate world for everyone.
