Crown – Métis Nation Summit to Take Place on Monday January 30, 2017

On Monday, January 30th, 2017, the leaders of the Métis Nation will be meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau and his Ministers for the first Crown–Métis Nation Summit between these Confederation Partners.

The meeting will be held 10 am to 12 noon in Centre Block of the House of Commons where 36 years earlier – on this same day, in the same building – the Métis Nation negotiated the recognition and inclusion of the Métis people in the about-to-be-patriated Canadian Constitution with the Government of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

This is the first of the three permanent forums to which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau committed on December 15th, 2016.
