The MNA concludes round of engagements regarding Climate Change

Posted on:

The Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) is happy to announce the conclusion of its Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities Community Engagement workshops on climate change.  The MNA held a series of 18 workshops throughout Alberta between April and June of this year, which aimed to educate, inform, and gather feedback from MNA members on climate change and related initiatives.  The workshops took place in the following locations:

  • Athabasca
  • Fort McMurray
  • Lloydminster
  • Stony Plain
  • Calgary
  • Grand Prairie
  • Medicine Hat
  • Valleyview
  • Cold Lake
  • High Prairie
  • Peace River
  • Wabasca-Demarais
  • Edmonton
  • Lac La Biche
  • St. Paul
  • Edson
  • Lethbridge
  • Slave Lake

We would like to thank all of the attendees, participants, and volunteers who joined us during the past three months.  A lot of time and effort was spent ensuring that we could deliver a strong program for our members, and thanks to your support, we are thrilled with its success.

The MNA has listened closely to the feedback we have gathered throughout the engagements.  This gathered feedback will aim to inform policy and program development, and ensure that Métis interests and concerns are being heard and addressed. The MNA is currently in the process of communicating this feedback to the Government of Alberta in order to work towards providing MNA members with programs, services, and initiatives, related to climate change, that would provide the greatest benefit.

Please note that the MNA is still accepting feedback through its online survey.  If you would like to access the online feedback form, please click here.
