MN–S  CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM AND RELATED LEGISLATIVE CHANGES

Our Métis Nation in Saskatchewan is growing. The principles by which the Nation is governed change and evolve. We want to know your thoughts as we move the MN–S Constitutional Reform process forward.

In April 2019, the Métis Nation Legislative Assembly (MNLA) mandated a province-wide consultation process on the revision and reform of the Constitution of the Métis Nation – Saskatchewan. A three-phase consultation process titled Voice of the People was developed, and an interim report was presented at the Fall 2019 MNLA. Phase two consultations were halted in early 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic.

MN–S will be travelling across the province to listen to the regional needs of our citizens. The first series of discussions will focus on a Métis Judicial (Tribunal) System, Mapping and Boundaries, changes to the Saskatchewan Métis Elections Act 2007, and proposed changes to the Amending Formula. The MN–S Registry Department will be available for citizenship application intake and assistance at each session listed below. For information about the registry process visit https://metisnationsk.com/citizenship/#register.

Regional consultations will be held in the following cities and there will be four online sessions, two specific to youth.
