On June 15 – 16, 2013, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) canoes participated in the Mississauga Waterfront Festival. The festival is recognized as Mississauga’s Signature Family and Friends event that features shows, games and fun for the whole family.

The MNO canoes made several trips on both afternoons along the shore of the Credit River while proudly displaying the Métis National flag.

The local Métis community was well represented by Métis Fiddler, Ms. Amie Nault and MNO’s Summer Youth Cultural Interpreters.
