Exploring Options for Métis Governance in the 21st Century

DOWNLOAD  |  Major changes are afoot with respect to the Métis reality in Canada as evidenced by a number of developments including the unanimous Supreme Court judgement affirming the constitutional rights of the Métis in R. v. Powley.  It is a near certainty that the coming years will herald major advancements with respect to the Métis agenda.  In contrast to the governance issues relating to First Nations, there has been relatively little written or researched on Métis Nation governance. In order to begin to fill this gap, this paper has the following purpose: to review existing Métis Nation governance structures in Canada and explore options for their future development in order to stimulate thinking among Métis and across governments.
