The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) is pleased to offer the Métis Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program. The Program is funded by the province of Ontario through the Indigenous Healing and Wellness Strategy (IHWS). This Program is designed to help children and families from the pre-natal stage to six years of age. The goal of the Program is to ensure equitable access to resources, support, and knowledge for Métis families so that their children have the best possible opportunity to thrive.
The Program offers preparation for parenting and pre-natal and post-natal care. The goal is to assist all Indigenous families in providing an environment for the healthy development of children through home visits, service coordination, and referrals. The Program which provides support for children at risk is voluntary and open to any Indigenous family who requests the service.
The Program is provided through MNO Health Services Workers in 15 Métis communities across Ontario:
- Fort Frances
- North Bay
- Sault Ste. Marie
- Thunder Bay
