The new Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) office in Haileybury was officially opened on March 25, 2017. The office will serve as the headquarters of the MNO Temiskaming Métis Council (TMC) and the new MNO Métis Family Wellbeing program.
The MNO Timiskaming Métis Council (TMC) originally opened an office in Haileybury in 2001 and in 2004, the MNO TMC was pleased with the signing of the MNO/Ministry of Natural Resources Interim Harvesting Agreement, which recognized the MNO’s Harvester Card system. For the most part, the MNO TMC office was managed by volunteers and Council members and was only open part-time. Recently, however, because of the new MNO Family Wellbeing program needing an office in the TMC’s jurisdiction, the MNO TMC is able to share the office with the MNO Family Wellbeing staff members allowing the office to be open full-time and provide better service MNO citizens.
The office is now very busy and is a centre of activity for the community.
