International and Inter-National Efforts

Since 1983, the Métis National Council has been the national and international voice of the Métis Nation within Canada. Through the Canada-Métis Nation Accord, the MNC advocates on behalf of its Governing Members—the democratically elected Métis Governments of Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia—to advance Métis rights and interests within their respective jurisdictions, including the implementation of the Métis Nation’s inherent right to self-determination and self-government. 

The MNC represents Métis citizens internationally at the United Nations, including the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, as well as at other international forums to advance Métis priorities.
