Press Statement:

Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak Inc. (MKO) is encouraging Indigenous peoples across the province of Manitoba to vote in the federal election scheduled to take place on Monday, Oct. 21.

“If you are 18 years old and a resident of Manitoba, it is your Constitutional right and your civic duty to vote,” said Grand Chief Garrison Settee.

“Get involved simply by getting to a polling station on Monday, Oct. 21. If you’ve never voted before, ask a friend or family member to join you and head to the polling station together to cast your ballots. Voting is a free opportunity to make a difference—your voice matters so get out and vote!”

MKO will continue to advocate for 26 Northern First Nations regardless of who is elected on Oct. 21.

MKO has created a webpage at to provide clear information on how to vote in the upcoming election.
