About the Métis


It is an exciting time for Métis in Saskatchewan as we continue on our journey of self-government and realizing Louis Riel’s dream of self-determination. Ensuring our governance reflects our values and culture is necessary and your voice is critical to constitutional reform.  We invite you to join us in sharing your ideas as we collectively review a draft of the proposed amendments to the MN–S Constitution.

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

  • Individual hearings: Have your voice heard in an individual 30-minute session with the MN–S Constitutional Reform team. These individual hearings  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 October 15, 2023.
