The MN-S completed its return to democratic accountability on Saturday May 27, 2017, with close to 5,000 citizens of the MNS voting. Glen McCallum was elected President and Gerald Morin was re-elected as Vice-President.

“This election marks a return to open, democratic Métis Nation government in Saskatchewan,” said MNC President Clément Chartier. “The large turnout is testimony to the strong desire of Métis Nation citizens in Saskatchewan for the MN-S to renew its historic mission of securing the rights and interests of the Métis.”

The outcome of the election, held in the wake of the successful Summit with the Prime Minister on April 13 and the signing of the Canada-Métis Nation Accord, is seen as having a positive impact for the Métis Nation as a whole.

“Resuming its mandate from the people is critically important for the MN-S and also for the Métis Nation across our homeland” said Chartier. “With our central base on the prairies, we need an effective MN-S to negotiate section 35 rights with the federal government including self-government at its regional table as well as joining with the MNC and its other Governing Members in the broader bilateral, nation-to-nation process with the Trudeau government. With this election and the months of hard work preceding it, we now have that effective voice in the Métis Nation-Saskatchewan.”

Other candidates elected to provincial office were Ashley Norton elected as Secretary and Mary Ann Morin as Treasurer. At the Regional level, the election produced a number of new Regional Directors.
