The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Early Learning and Child Care Program is pleased to offer the Extra-Curricular Reimbursement Program. The MNO supports Métis families with young children through this Program by having their child or children’s extra-curricular fees and/or extra-curricular equipment covered by the MNO. 

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • March Break Camps
  • Summer Camps
  • Early Learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) Programs
  • Early Learning Arts (music, visual arts, dance, drama) and Language courses
  • Sports and Skills development
  • Community Programs including Scouting and Girl Guides
  • Virtual/Online programs

Families can apply to have their child(ren)’s extra-curricular fees reimbursed by the MNO. The Extra-Curricular Reimbursement Program will not pay for extra-curricular fees in advance. Parents must pay all fees upfront and provide proof of purchase for reimbursement from the MNO. For more information on what we can and cannot cover please see our Extra-Curricular Reimbursement Program Guide

It is strongly recommended that parents and guardians review the updated Program Guidelines and FAQ prior to purchasing any equipment.

For a family to qualify for extra-curricular fee reimbursement:

  • One parent or child must be a citizen of the Métis Nation of Ontario
  • The child or children must be between the ages of 0 and 12
  • The family must reside in Ontario 
  • The family must be able to provide proof of purchase of extra-curricular fees and/or extra-curricular equipment to partake in an extra-curricular activity (receipts are required)

The MNO will reimburse any extra-curricular fees that were paid after April 1, 2022.
