Métis Culture

Denied the recognition of their collective rights, the Métis became Canada's "forgotten people". Only in Alberta was any action taken to alleviate Métis distress through the establishment of Métis settlements in 1938.

Métis History

Well known for their tracking, guiding, and interpretive skills, Métis were often employed by the Northwest Mounted Police, just as they are often employed today by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Duty To Consult

This new duty requires governments to consult Indian, Inuit and Métis peoples and accommodate their interests whenever a Crown actor considers conduct that might adversely affect Aboriginal rights or interests.
