Update (September 6, 2022)
-Thank you for your interest in the 2022 ELCC Christmas Program. Due to the large response of applicants, this program is at capacity, and we will not be accepting new applications.

Following its success in 2021, we are excited to bring the Métis Early Learning Christmas Gift Program back for 2022!

The MNO hopes every Métis early learner will feel the spirit of the season through this program. To allow sufficient time for purchasing, wrapping, and shipping gifts, the application process for this program will open on Friday, September 2nd at 9:00 am (EST).

All Métis families are welcome to submit ONE application per family if they meet the following criteria:

  • One Parent, Legal Guardian, or Child must be a Métis Nation of Ontario Citizen and must reside in Ontario
    • Proof of Métis Nation of Ontario citizenship will be required when completing the application.
  • Have at least one child between the ages of 0-12 years
    • Proof of age will be required when completing the application. However, only ONE of the following is needed: MNO Citizenship card, birth certificate, or passport.
  • Applicants must reside at the same address as the child(ren) they are applying for.

Successful applicants will receive a pre-wrapped, developmentally appropriate gift for their early learner(s) in a chosen area of interest or an area of interest approved by the ELCC Team.

The application will remain open until September 26th, 2022, at 4:30 pm.

Please Note: Registration will be closed and taken offline early should the program reach full capacity before September 26th, 2022.

Our 2022 Christmas Gift Program has a limited capacity, only approved applications will receive a confirmation email. All applicants accepted into the 2022 Christmas Gift Program will receive an email confirmation by November 1st, 2022.

All questions regarding the program can be forwarded to Program Coordinator Heather Ferguson
