Métis Rights & Reconciliation Engagement Sessions (Phase II)

Posted by on

On July 25, 2018 the Government of Canada and the Métis Nation British Columbia took an important step to renew and strengthen their government-to-government relationship by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on reconciliation.

This MOU, co-developed by partners, represents a joint commitment to identify challenges, opportunities and priorities. This MOU reflects the work going on across the Métis Nation with Governing Members on a path to self-determination. We are committed to working in partnership to find constructive, shared solutions aimed at closing socio-economic gaps, advancing reconciliation and building a long-term relationship which will not only benefit members of the Métis Nation British Columbia but all Canadians.

The Métis Rights and Reconciliation Community Engagement sessions provide an important venue for MNBC Citizens and self-identified Métis to give feedback and direction on s.35 Rights and these 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.
