Engage for Change


28 January 2021 (All day) to 24 February 2021 (All day)

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Healing & Wellness Branch is arranging virtual "Sharing Circles" for Métis youth in Ontario. These discussions will provide a platform for Métis youth to share their opinions on vital issues, and contribute to the development of future educational resources and tools. 

The MNO is currently seeking up to 15 youth (ages 16-29) per session to engage in this valuable workshop and share
their ideas with the MNO. Sessions will be held over Zoom and attendees will be provided an honorarium as compensation for their participation.
