The M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario Youth Council is a group of youth representatives from across Ontario who advocate on behalf of the concerns and interests of M¨¦tis youth at the provincial level. Additionally, there is a Provisional Council of the M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (PCMNO) Youth Representative elected to the PCMNO who meets with the MNOYC as part of his or her duties.?
MNOYC¡¯s mandate is to identify issues affecting M¨¦tis youth and to work with the MNO to ensure these issues are addressed. Members of the MNOYC communicate on a regular basis, take part in meetings and community events across the province, including the MNO¡¯s Annual General Assembly (AGA), and often attend youth driven and focused conferences representing M¨¦tis youth across Ontario.?
Additionally, each MNO Community Council has a position for a local Youth Representative who promotes youth initiatives, works directly with the MNOYC and represents the voice of M¨¦tis youth in his or her area.?The MNOYC representatives are appointed in province-wide elections held every four years. The most recent elections were held during the 2012 AGA in Sault Ste. Marie.
