On Tuesday, December 22, 2015, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Georgian Bay Métis Council handed out awards for their third annual Helen Bradley Memorial Bursary.

Senator Helen Bradley passed away in 2010. She was a founding member of the MNO Georgian Bay Métis Council and deeply respected within the MNO. She was a recipient of the 2008 Ontario Medal of Good Citizenship, an honour recognizing individuals who have made outstanding contributions to their communities.

The council picked three recipients for the bursary by evaluating essays the students submitted on “What it means to be Métis.” The students also had to provide proof that they had attended an MNO Georgian Bay Métis Council event in the spring or summer of 2015.

The winners of the 2015 Helen Bradley Memorial Bursary were:

The MNO Georgian Bay Métis Council would like to congratulate these students and wish them well in their future endeavours. The council would also like to thank Bruce Power for providing the funds for this wonderful bursary.
