President's Corner:

Métis Nation Rights

An important role of Métis Nation governing bodies is to continue the historical struggle  for the recognition of Métis rights.  On September 19, 2003, the Supreme Court of Canada delivered its landmark decision in R. v. Powley which recognized and affirmed the existence of Métis as a distinct Aboriginal people with existing rights protected by s. 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. This landmark case is central to the Métis Nation agenda  as are other Métis rights litigations, some ongoing. For a better understanding of these cases, please see the annual Métis Law Summary produced by Métis lawyer, Jean Teillet.
