About The Metis Economic Development Organization

The Metis Economic Development Organization (MEDO) is a business investment and management firm that works with the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) to make key business investment decisions based on generating profit and building capacity for the long term sustainability of the Metis within Manitoba.

The Metis Economic Development Organization was formed and operates as the ‘for profit’ arm of the Manitoba Metis Federation, with the paramount goal of achieving a financially self-sustainable Metis Nation. MEDO acts as a 'crown corporation' similar to that of Lotteries or Manitoba Hydro generating profits for the Province of Manitoba.

MEDO is dedicated to pursuing greater financial self-sustainability for the MMF by investing in for-profit ventures. MEDO will provide support to other Metis business owners and entrepreneurs through access to programs and services, business partnerships as well as potential sources of equity for business development. 

MEDO works along side Louis Riel Capital Corporation, with access to the Metis Economic Development fund (MEDF), as well as the Metis Generation Fund (MGF) nurturing and supporting Metis businesses.

All profits generated by MEDO flow directly to the Metis Capital Trust, which in turn supports the Manitoba Metis Federation.
