On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the French River Métis, we are sorry to have to inform you that we have had to cancel this year’s French River Métis Rendez-Vous.
We would like to apologise for the cancellation, especially to those of you who have already made travel plans. Unfortunately, this is due to a series of unfortunate events beyond our control but we intend to make next year’s Rendez-Vous even more spectacular so we hope you can join us then.

We would like to thank all the businesses that have to graciously supported us in the past and hope that for next years Rendez-Vous we can continue to count on all of you.
