About the Métis


It is an exciting time for Métis in Saskatchewan as our government comes into its own, realizing Louis Riel’s dream of self-determination. Constitutional reform is an integral part of our Métis Nation’s ongoing self-government, and we need you to be a part of the process this summer. Our upcoming round of constitutional reform consultations is scheduled to commence during the first week of June 2023 with a primary objective to gather input from Métis individuals throughout Saskatchewan. We invite you to join us in sharing your ideas as we collectively review a draft of the revised MN–S Constitution.

The Voice of the People constitutional reform process, under the leadership of Vice President Michelle LeClair, is offering four distinct ways for you to participate:

  • In-person group sessions: Join us for group consultations in June 2023 facilitated by the MN–S Constitutional Reform team in Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, and Buffalo Narrows. These sessions will provide a platform for open discussions and valuable insights.
  • Online sessions: Three online sessions will be offered in June 2023 with one session dedicated specifically for youth. Participate in these sessions from the comfort of your own home and contribute your unique perspectives on constitutional reform.
  • Individual hearings: Have your voice heard in an individual 30-minute session with the MN–S Constitutional Reform team. These individual hearings will be offered in Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, and Buffalo Narrows in June 2023 and provide an opportunity for focused discussions, allowing you to express your thoughts and ideas more fully. Email [email protected] to arrange.
  • Local-led sessions: To ensure representation at the grass-roots level, Métis Locals will have a chance to hold consultation sessions for their community. Non-Local members are welcome to participate. MN–S will provide training, workbooks, educational materials and funding to ensure everyone can contribute effectively. These sessions are to be completed by August 31, 2023.

The Voice of the People Constitutional Reform held constitutional consultations in 2019 and in 2022 with sessions in every region of the province. Review the summary reports including feedback from 2019 and 2022.

The draft constitution that will be reviewed in the summer 2023 sessions is based on the feedback from these consultations.

Scheduled constitutional reform sessions for the month of June include:
