EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 19, 2024, WE'RE MOVING!!
President David Chartrand and Cabinet recognize that our Citizens, like many Canadians, have been impacted by the rising costs of fuel and food due to global events, including the war in Ukraine. This cost spike, along with the continuing harm the pandemic is creating in our communities, has led your Métis government to take this proactive measure to support our Citizens.
The Manitoba Métis Federation, National Government of the Red River Métis, is investing $5 Million in targeted cost of living supplements for Citizens who are trying to make ends meet in these challenging times. Through this initiative, thousands of Red River Métis Citizens and their families will receive cost of living supplements.
Supplements are being provided in the form of monthly store voucher, in the case of post-secondary education students currently funded through the MMF, direct monthly transfers. Supplements are also available for Métis children and young adults who are being served through Métis Child and Family Services and for families enrolled in MMF’s Early Learning and Child Care programs.
Please see posters below for required documents, application information, and voucher pick up dates, times, and location.
