MÉTIS RIGHTS

 

Métis rights are classified into two categories: 1) land and resource rights and 2) self-governing rights. Métis do not advocate sovereignty or separation from Canada. Instead, we desire greater control over our lives within Canada; this is the same objective that motivated the 1869 and 1885 resistance struggles. This Métis Rights section provides current and historical information on the status of Métis Rights including harvesting rights, land claim rights and consultation rights. Current Métis rights updates can be found on the “Current Discussion” page while past publications on Métis Rights are filed under the “Archived Métis Rights Publications” page. This section also includes detailed case studies on R.v. Powley (2003) and MMF vs. Canada (2013), which are two landmark Métis Rights cases that were victorious at the Supreme Court. Detailed information on both of these historic cases may be retrieved on the “Supreme Court”  page. The Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) Provincial Office has created a Métis Rights and Accommodation Department to ensure that the Métis community, represented by the MNA, is informed about proposed resource development projects and is included in government and industry consultation processes.

WHO IS METIS?

The term “Métis” in section 35 does not encompass all individuals with mixed Indian and European heritage; rather, it refers to distinctive peoples who, in addition to their mixed ancestry, developed their own customs, way of life, and recognizable group identity separate from their Indian or Inuit and European forebears.”
