STEPS Standards of Practice Summary of Changes

Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) is committed to improving Citizens’ experiences when accessing programs and services. In 2021, MNBC conducted a thorough review of its Skills Training, Employment & Post-Secondary (STEPS) funded program guidelines and released these Standards of Practice (SOP) to the public for the first time to ensure transparency and accountability to our Citizens and funders.
