Winnipeg, MB – The Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) Annual General Assembly will take place Friday, September 21 through Sunday, September 23, 2018 at Assiniboia Downs.
 
The MMF AGA is a cornerstone of governance within the Métis Nation. Each fall, Manitoba’s Métis Citizens gather to review accomplishments, celebrate successes and plan for a healthy, prosperous future. The AGA empowers each Citizen of Manitoba’s Métis Nation to participate in setting goals and direction for MMF priorities, actions and investments. It also offers unparalleled opportunities for building relationships and networking with Métis Citizens, leaders, artists and entrepreneurs. More than 3,000 Métis Citizens attend and participate each year.
 
The 2018 AGA anticipates a major announcement from the federal government to be delivered by Canada’s Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau. This long-awaited announcement will have significant, lasting impacts for Métis Nationhood and self-determination.
 
The AGA will also include a tradeshow for Métis entrepreneurs, a Youth Conference, and a Mini-AGA with family-friendly activities for children. Infinity Women Secretariat will hold its Annual General Assembly in conjunction with these events on Friday, September 21 at 5:00pm.
 
Together, Manitoba’s Métis Citizens are taking new strides toward defending our Nation, advancing our rights and protecting our people. Meet the Métis Nation at the 2018 AGA!
