The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) offers a variety of education and training programs, bursaries and scholarships in partnership with post-secondary institutions and employers. These programs have assisted Métis people advance their education and careers through funding and work placements.

To highlight the success of some of the Métis who have taken advantage of the MNO’s offerings, the MNO has produced series of videos highlighting these individuals in such fields of trades, health care, aviation and administration. These videos will be released over the next month with the second of the series featuring Justin Belcourt.

Justin Belcourt from Sudbury, Ontario graduated from Aviation College in pilot training but due to financial difficulties he could not complete the second component of his training, instructor rating. That’s when he decided to contact the MNO. The MNO was able to provide the financial means that allowed Justin to complete his training and essentially achieve his dream job as a flight instructor. This is his story.
