The Métis Nation's citizens and their way of life are currently exposed to significant impacts of climate change as compared to their non-Indigenous counterparts within Canada. As climate change continues to disrupt the ways in which we interact with the land, our communities and our heritage, the Métis National Council must not only support the preservation the Métis way of life in light of these globally felt changes, but also support Governing Members in building a brighter, cleaner and more sustainable future for all Métis citizens. The Métis Nation is in the unique position of being able to combine our deeply held connection to the lands, waters and skies across the Métis Homeland with our distinct history of adaptation and resiliency. This provides the much needed leadership and solutions needed to address the numerous challenges posed by changing climate. Stewardship of the land is at the core of the Métis identity and continues to guide our path towards a stronger, healthier and more resilient nation.
