MARCH 17, 2020
Your Manitoba Metis Government is determined to protect our staff, leadership, Citizens, and our most vulnerable people including our Elders. The MMF is taking action to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic that is spreading across the country. The MMF is taking proactive internal and external steps as your Manitoba Métis Government to help slow the progression of the COVID-19 virus in our Metis Community. Among other processes, we have established protocols, a communication strategy, emergency health facilities, resource supplementation and direct support services.
As of now, we are implementing protocols on a need basis and as the situation change will let citizens know immediately. We are committed to keeping you informed and up to date. This is the #1 priority for your Metis Government. We are continuing to work with the federal government and monitor the COVID-19 situation daily.
Please continue to stay informed with trusted sources. These reliable sources can be found on our website and will be updated regularly. We will also share announcements regularly to ensure you are informed on how to access supports. Stay safe by practicing social distancing, handwashing and, most of all during this uncertain time, be kind to other people. Please consider that your choices and actions today will impact the health of our neighbours, family, and friends.
