Minister Mona Buors

Minister Mona Buors has been a life long citizen of the Manitoba Métis Federation, having spent years actively involved with our Métis Government, particularly within the Interlake Métis Association Inc. as a local executive, a representative on numerous MMF boards and past Chair of Metis Child, Family and Community Services Agency.

In 2014, Mona decided to run in the MMF election where she was the successful incumbent by acclamation for two terms now. This could not be more fitting for a Métis woman who has given so much of her time and dedication to children, families and the Métis cause for decades.

Prior to being appointed as the Métis Minister of Child and Family Services on July 15, 2018, she was the Associate Minister for Health as well as Heritage, Culture, Sports and Youth.

Minister Buors is a proud graduate from the University of Brandon where she obtained her Bachelor of Education and pursued a post baccalaureate at the University of St. Boniface, an affiliate of University of Manitoba. She now has both English and French degrees in education . She retired from teaching at the end of the 2014 school year with 35 years of experience teaching children from all over Canada from kindergarten to Grade 12. Being completely bilingual, she is a translator for many literary books and she has traveled nationally to preserve Métis language.

This distinguished Métis woman also holds family very dear to her heart. She has been married to her husband, Jerry Buors, for 45 years. They have two adult children, Desiree and Douglas, as well as three grandsons, Emmitt, Owen, and Jase. Family and community gatherings are one of the Minister's favorite things in life.
