The Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) was developed following our Annual General Assembly (AGA) in 2017, where it was unanimously resolved to fully support and direct the MNA in “[…] designing and undertaking climate change initiatives and programs, including actions aimed at reducing GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions, increasing Métis involvement and awareness of climate change, while creating capacity and economic opportunities for Métis citizens.”

In response, the MNA CCAP was launched and included five core strategic goals:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across MNA institutions and provide MNA citizens the tools needed to reduce their household GHG emissions
  • Create opportunities for MNA institutions (e.g. cost savings, economic sustainability, equity)
  • Create opportunities for MNA citizens (e.g. income, jobs, training, cost savings, careers)
  • Increase MNA capacity to implement climate change programs (e.g. expertise, resources, staff, tools)
  • Increase understanding of climate change and encourage social change to take action

The Climate Team continues aiming to accomplish these goals under the MNA CCAP, and work is currently underway on the following initiatives:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Energy Management and Energy Efficiency
  • Engagement
  • Sustainable Living
  • Health & Climate
