To ensure the safety and wellbeing of Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizens, families and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 AGA will be held virtually this year on to Saturday, November 7, 2020 and hosted by the Métis Nation of Ontario.
To participate in the MNO AGA, Citizens must register in advance.
*A DRAFT AGENDA for the November 7, 2020 AGA now available*
This year’s virtual AGA will be held using video-conferencing platform Zoom, which also provides online voting tools and infrastructure. Citizens without internet access may also participate in the AGA over the telephone.
We want to thank the Toronto and York Region Métis Council for their understanding as we defer their hosting of the AGA to a future year when it can be held in person
