The Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) is providing fishing nets to Metis Commercial Fishers to reduce operating costs for Commercial Fishers during a challenging time. The MMF Commercial Fisher Net Program will provide 10 nets to each Metis Commercial Fisher who signs up to the program, to a maximum of 1000 nets.
To apply to the MMF Commercial Fisher Net Program, the following criteria must be met:
· Applicants must provide a clear copy of their valid Manitoba Commercial Fishers License
· Applicants must provide a clear copy of their MMF Citizenship Card or letter from MMF Central Registry Office (CRO) confirming an accepted application has been processed and approved for all Metis fishers
· Commercial Fishers must be located within Manitoba
If you are a Metis citizen who does not yet have an MMF Citizenship Card, please contact the MMF or your Regional Office to obtain assistance.
