On June 27th at 10:00 a.m. in Ottawa, Métis Nation of Ontario President Margaret Froh and the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Canada’s Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, signed the first ever self-government agreement between the Government of Canada and a Métis government.

They will be joined by the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario, as well as Métis leadership, youth and Elders from Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
