Self-government is a right that Métis citizens hold together, as members of the rights-holder Métis communities of which they are a part. The new Métis government will be formed by Métis citizens of all ages, who will work together to build and further strengthen our Métis government.
The MNO has learned much from past commitments to key governance principles and values of MNO citizens through the MNO Commission on Métis Rights and Self-Government and its engagement sessions held in 2017. Now the MNO is planning a province-wide mobilization process. in order to consult the citizens of the MNO on the Self-Government Agreement and to develop the Constitution of the future Métis government.
All MNO citizens can participate in the Métis Government’s Constitution consultations, and all voters, including those living in southern Ontario, will be able to vote in the process of ratifying the Constitution and Accord. on self-government. What the future Métis government looks like is up to all of us. We want to hear from you!
Over the next few months there will be plenty of opportunities for all MNO citizens to get involved, offer ideas, listen to others, learn and reflect together. Stay tuned for information on how you can participate in town halls, workshops and MNO meetings and sign up to receive updates on the MNO’s journey to self-government.
You can also provide comments, submit questions, videos or other information by writing to ORM at [email protected].
Together, we will move forward with Métis self-government in Ontario!
