Métis Nation of Alberta Governance Review Community Engagement

Posted on:


Edmonton, AB – Monday, April 4, 2016

As a community member, you have the opportunity to participate directly in shaping the future governance structures and processes of the Métis Nation of Alberta.

Shalene Jobin and Kirsten Lindquist from the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta are currently reviewing the MNA governance structure: how we make decisions, and how we are able to negotiate with our partners and stand up for our Métis rights.

As part of this governance review, we are asking community members such as yourself to participate through community focus group consultations in April 2016 at each of the 6 regions: Peace River, Lac La Biche, Slave Lake, Bonnyville, Edmonton, and Calgary.


Please note that focus group dates are still being decided. Participants will be emailed once these details are finalized.
