On January 27, 2022 the Métis National Council issued a Statement of Claim before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice resulting from an in-depth and ongoing review of the Métis National Council (MNC) administrative, legal and financial activities, policies and processes, including contracts, agreements, and consulting arrangements from previous administrations.
The Métis Nation of Ontario is a Governing Member of the MNC, and we stand by the MNC’s determination to uncover the truth and see justice served, and the absolute belief that we as a Nation deserve to move forward, together, for the collective benefit of Métis families.
As a Métis Government and Governing Member of the MNC, we stand together on the values of accountability, transparency and integrity. We fully support President Caron and the MNC’s decision to advance this claim.
The work that we do as Métis Governments matters to our citizens and communities and it comes with great responsibility. We must respect the legacy of our ancestors and be accountable to our future generations.
Maarsii, Merci, Thank You,
President, Métis Nation of Ontario
