Since early 2020, there has been plenty of uncertainty surrounding the global health pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. Métis families have experienced losses of all kinds, even if they have not lost a loved one directly to the pandemic.
Whether you are wondering if you or a loved one has symptoms, where to get vaccinated, where to find employment supports, or if you are simply feeling isolated and do not know where to turn, LFMO has gathered some resources for you to consult.
