The Métis Nation of Ontario Youth Council (MNOYC) is thrilled to invite Métis youth (ages 16-29) to our 8th annual Youth Leadership Conference: La Tayr: Strengthening Métis Kinship with the Land.

Youth will have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic lineup of workshops and land-based outdoor learning experiences, revolving around the theme “La Tayr: Métis Kinship with the Land.” Collaborating with Métis community members from across the homeland and medicine line, we aim to spark meaningful conversations and learning experiences, while celebrating the richness and uniqueness of Métis culture.
