Background

On July 29, 2022, the MNO publicly released the report from its year-long, province-wide citizen consultations on the results from its Registry and Self-Government Readiness Process (“Registry Review”). A copy of the “What We Heard” Citizen Consultation Report is available here.

At the 2022 MNO Annual General Assembly, a resolution was passed which, among other things, adopted the Citizen Consultation Report in principle and directed the MNO to undertake information sessions on the report with interested MNO citizens to ensure that the issues in it are fully explained, discussed, and understood.

The resolution also directed the MNO to organize and hold a province-wide plebiscite on next steps related to the Registry Review process. For more information, including the plebiscite question, see the MNO’s fact sheet and frequently asked questions on the plebiscite.

The MNO continues to encourage all citizens with “Missing Documentation” or “Incomplete” files to reach out to the MNO Registry to try to complete their files as soon as possible.

The MNO Registry can be reached toll free at 1-855-798-1006 or at 613-798-1006. You can also communicate with the MNO Registry via email at info@mnoregistry.ca.
