MNO Veterans¡¯ Council Senator Dr.
Alis Kennedy, C.D., O.M.C., after
receiving her O.M.C. in December 2011.
The Premier of Ontario has appointed M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans¡¯ Council Senator Dr. Alis Kennedy, C.D., O.M.C., a Member of the Province of Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship (OMC) Advisory Council.
Senator Kennedy¡¯s appointment to the OMC Advisory Council reflects her ongoing commitment to the betterment of Ontario and the M¨¦tis Nation through her many years of volunteer work. A M¨¦tis veteran and MNO citizen, this rare and distinguished appointment is an honour to all M¨¦tis. Senator Kennedy is the embodiment of "attaining our highest potential" and is a fine example to M¨¦tis youth who she actively mentors.
Senator Kennedy was approached to apply for the Council by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration - Ontario Honours and Awards Secretariat in December 2011 when she received her O.M.C. designation. The Ministry wanted a recipient of the medal to be on the council and being M¨¦tis and francophone made Senator Kennedy a strong candidate.
The MNO is very proud of Senator Kennedy¡¯s appointment.See ALL news articles
