Métis Nation Meets with Minister of Finance Morneau

May 24, 2017 Winnipeg, MB: Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau sat down with MNC President Chartier and Vice-President Chartrand in the Manitoba Metis Federation building in Winnipeg to discuss ways to strengthen the nation-to-nation relationship between Canada and the Métis Nation.

The meeting with the federal Finance Minister is an important follow-up to the Canada-Métis Nation Accord that was signed at the Summit with the Prime Minister on April 13, 2017. The Accord set a number of priorities for this year’s work which include employment and training, education, housing, health and a new fiscal relationship.

The Métis Nation leaders impressed upon Minister Morneau the critical importance of ensuring that the results of the policy development talks involving federal Ministers and Métis Nation leaders during the course of the year are translated into meaningful action in the federal budget. It was agreed that a bilateral working group of officials from Finance Canada and the Métis Nation will examine issues of mutual concern.
