MNO Post-Secondary Education Quarterly Update Vol. 6

PSE Student Support Program

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Post-Secondary Education Support Program is up and running once again. Successful applicants, enrolled in the Spring and Summer should have had their 1st installment issued already, if they have finished their Secondary Tasks.

Students will be notified in early December to complete a short questionnaire confirming their previous enrollments and verifying their continued enrollment. Completing this task will allow us to issue your next payment.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your Student Support Officer, or direct questions to psesupport@metisantion.org
