MNO holds Third Annual Louis Riel Day Pancake Dinner
and Social Gathering
Each year on November 16 the Métis people mark Louis Riel Day. While this annual day of recognition is a somber commemoration — it is also an opportunity to recognize Riel’s many contributions to Canada, highlight the historic contemporary achievements of the Métis and gather together, as Métis people, to celebrate our still vibrant culture.
On Thursday, November 16, 2023 @ 5:30PM – 6:30PM EST the MNO is hosting our third annual virtual Louis Riel Day Pancake Dinner over Zoom. This is an opportunity to log in and share your favourite MNO memories, chat with your Métis family and friends, and enjoy the opportunity to share a meal together – regardless of our physical location!
Upon registration you will receive a Zoom link to join the celebration on November 16th.
The first 500 households to register will be eligible to receive, via mail, the basic ingredients for your pancake dinner as well as some commemorative souvenirs to mark the occasion. When registering, please note that only one email address per household can be used.
While only 500 families will receive a pancake kit, there is no limit to how many people can attend the virtual event which includes:
