Métis Nation and Finance Minister Morneau Hold Pre-Budget Consultations

On November 21, 2017,  President Chartier and Vice-President David Chartrand met with the federal finance Minister in Ottawa to look at Métis Nation priorities for the upcoming federal budget.

“The meeting was a timely opportunity for the Minister and the Métis Nation to see how the priorities under the Canada-Métis Nation Accord can be translated into meaningful action”, said President Chartier. “In addition to Métis Nation social and economic programs and services we wish to see addressed in the federal budget, we also had a chance to discuss a new government-to-government fiscal relationship.”

The Canada-Métis Nation Accord identifies housing, early learning and child care, skills development, health, scholarships and bursaries, and Métis Nation educational institutions as first-year priorities. These have been the focus of much of the work at the ministerial and officials level since the Métis Nation leadership and Prime Minister Trudeau signed the Accord in April 2017. They are also the focus of most of the Métis Nation proposals for funding under Budget 2018 expected in March of next year.
