President's Corner:

Métis Governments

The Métis Nation is represented through democratically-elected, province-wide governance structures from Ontario westward; namely, the Métis Nation of Ontario, the Manitoba Métis Federation, the Métis Nation – Saskatchewan, the Métis Nation of Alberta and the Métis Nation British Columbia. These Métis governance structures are the contemporary expression of the centuries-old struggle of the Métis Nation to be self-determining within the Canadian federation and are the Governing Members of the Métis National Council.

Métis citizens mandate these governance structures through province-wide ballot box elections held at regular intervals for regional and provincial leadership. They and their communities also participate in these Métis governance structures by way of elected Locals or Community Councils and provincial assemblies held annually.

Under this distinct system of democratic accountability,  MNC Governing Members and the MNC itself  have served the Métis Nation well by providing an effective means of representation at the community, regional, provincial, national and international level. As well, the Governing Members have a proven track record in addressing the socio-economic needs of Métis Nation citizens by delivering government programs and services in a fair, transparent, cost-efficient and accountable manner.

The Métis Nation’s governance structures and institutions continue to evolve to meet the aspirations, needs and challenges of the Métis people. Through the Métis Nation Protocol signed by the Government of Canada and the MNC in 2008, Métis representative bodies are pursuing greater capacity in the form of legal authorities and guaranteed, predictable financing that will enable them to fulfill the democratic mandate they have received  from their citizens, their extensive responsibilities for delivering important programs and services, and their goal of implementing the Métis Nation’s inherent right to self-government within the Canadian federation.
