How can Citizens actively participate in the AGA?

It has always been the priority of the MMF President and Cabinet to ensure all Red River Métis Citizens have the ability to participate in their AGA. This year, Citizens have the opportunity to attend either in-person or virtually. This hybrid approach ensures that our Citizens of the Red River have active participation in their government, which includes our Citizens that live out of province.

How do I register for AGA?

Online registration is for General Registration only. All MMF Departments and Affiliates should contact their Directors regarding registration.

Red River Métis Citizens can register two ways:

  1. Through their Regional Office.  (click here for a list of the regional contacts)
  2. On-line through the MMF AGA General Registration link posted on the AGA website. (click here)

Every Local is allocated 10 spots (including a Youth Delegate) to attend the AGA in person. Local Executives appoint these individuals. Please contact your Region if you have questions regarding the selection process.

Only register online if your are not an appointed Local Delegate.

What is important about the AGA?

Every Red River Métis Citizen across the homeland has a voice and a vote at the AGA, which makes the AGA the most important gathering of the Red River Citizens as It gives each Citizen an opportunity to participate in their government. 

The AGA provides a forum for our MMF President and Cabinet to present the accomplishments and advancements in government operations, and for Citizens to provide guidance, direction and input to the vision and future going forward. 

Who are MMF Delegates?

Registered delegates of the AGA that are entitled to vote are Red River Métis Citizens. Each delegate’s Citizenship will be verified during the registration process. Verification happens in two ways:

  1.  Citizens who are attending on behalf of their Local will be verified through their Local and Regional Office.
  2.   Citizens who register through General Registration will be verified by our Central Registry Office.

Please note that only verified Citizens will be given credentials to vote at this year’s AGA.  Registering as early as possible will avoid delays in issuing materials and credentials. Registration deadlines are as follows:

  • September 26, 2023: Registration with Regions for Local Delegates
  • October 10, 2023: General Registration
  • October 10, 2023: Virtual Registration

Will there be a trade show? Will it be accessible virtually?

We are happy to announce that there will be an in-person trade show at the Assiniboia Downs located on the third floor. There will be approximately 70 booths of businesses, crafters, as well as MMF department information booths to visit.  Don’t forget to enter the free draws at each booth – which are drawn at the end of day Sunday!

Unfortunately, the tradeshow will be unavailable to those attending virtually.

How can I watch the AGA with poor internet connection?

Unfortunately, we do not have any control of the band-width in any given geographical area.  We do however provide tech support that will be available to assist those experiencing technical difficulties during the Annual General Assembly.
