MNO Canoe Expedition 2023This summer, bold and daring Métis youth will paddle into history as part of the fifth Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Canoe Expedition 2023! This epic canoe trek will launch from Thunder Bay and end in Ottawa to kick-off the MNO’s 2023 Annual General Assembly.

During this adventure of a lifetime participants will team up with other Métis youth on land and water to brave the rivers and rapids of the Great Lakes.

Making this Canoe Expedition extra special is the fact that it will take place in  2023 – when we will mark the 30th anniversary of the MNO and the 20th anniversary of the landmark Métis rights court decision in R v. Powley. This canoe trek will be truly historic!

The 2023 MNO Canoe Expedition is open to Métis youth, ages 18-29, who are citizens of the Métis Nation of Ontario. Youth representatives from other Métis National Council governing members willalso be eligible by invitation. The MNO will strive to balance participation across MNO regions when selecting participants. Selected applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview in early 2023.Spaces are limited.
