Backgrounder:

The sessions provide a venue for MNBC Citizens and self-identified Métis to give feedback and direction on s.35 Rights and Reconciliation negotiations; Consultation; Natural Resources; Métis Veterans; Citizenship Registry; and proposed MNBC Budget Legislation. 

The one on one format allows for personal dialogue and provides the opportunity to ask questions of MNBC elected leaders, representatives, and staff. Come by and meet our fantastic team and leaders of your community and let us learn about matters that are important to you.

There are six stations with a number of different subjects, each station will provide a brief questionnaire to be completed before moving on to the next station of interest.  Your feedback is critical to these sessions and to the Nation.  The team is eager and waiting to talk to you about these very important topics.

All Métis people (registered or self-identifying) are welcome to attend the Engagement sessions at any time during the day or evening. 

Please see the related overviews and topic summary documents in advance of your visit.  Your feedback is important, even if you are unable to attend the sessions please submit your feedback.
