Full Statement of Principles on Crown Consultation and Accommodation with Métis in Alberta

Background

The Statement of Principles on Crown Consultation and Accommodation with Métis in Alberta (“Statement of Principles”) was unanimously adopted by the 88th Annual General Assembly on August 6th and 7th, 2016.

The Statement of Principles was developed over a period of 6 months by the MNA Consultation Policy Technical Working Group (“TWG”), the members of which are volunteers appointed to represent each of the MNA’s 6 Regions. Karen Collins and Bev New, the MNA’s Provincial Council Ministers of Métis Rights and Accommodation, were also active participants in the TWG’s work.

The Statement of Principles is not meant to be an enforceable document that establishes the consultation process. Rather, it is meant to guide further work that must now be done to develop an enforceable consultation process to which the MNA’s Provincial, Regional, and Local Councils can consent.
