A Special Invitation from the Métis Government

General Information and Delegate Registration

The Manitoba Metis Federation is the self-government representative that promotes the political, social, cultural, and economic interests and rights of the Métis Nation within Manitoba. We deliver programs and services to our community including: child and family services; justice; housing; youth; education; human resources; economic development and natural resources.

The MMF was founded in 1967 by a group of forward thinking Métis who realized that it was necessary to stand up and fight for the rights of the Métis in Manitoba. Since then, the MMF has grown to over 650 staff throughout the Province, and has successfully promoted, protected and advanced the interests of its members. The Federation negotiates with the Provincial and Federal governments to access funding to provide services to the Métis people of Manitoba.

The Annual General Assembly is a fundamental part of our governance structure. There our citizens review our accomplishments and celebrate our success. The AGA provides each of us the opportunity to help set our goals and provides clear direction on upcoming investments and future priorities.

Our past offers guidance and is intimately linked to our present and our future. Through the leadership of Louis Riel and others, the Métis were the Founders of Manitoba. Under Riel, the Legislative Assembly of the Assiniboine became Manitoba’s first provincial government. The signing of the Manitoba Act in 1870 brought this province into Confederation, making us partners in the great country of Canada.

Today, the Métis continue to play an integral part in Manitoba’s cultural life and economic prosperity.

Sponsorship and Tradeshow Information

The Métis Nation is the fastest growing Indigenous population in Canada. Our Annual General Assembly is the largest gathering of Métis Citizens across the country. Each year more than 2500 Métis Citizens attend and participate in this important democratic gathering of our people.

With 3,000 delegates, exhibitors and guests attending our AGA, the Federation boasts the largest gathering of Métis delegates in Canada. AGA participants include Métis business owners, government agencies and individual consumers. All of them come to our Assembly to review our accomplishments and celebrate our achievements. The AGA is also a great place to do business.

Our tradeshow supports up to 75 booths each year, enabling companies, Crown Corporations and government agencies to market directly to the Métis people. Tradeshow traffic is substantial over these two days, and I encourage you to take part by registering your space on the floor today!

This year is an especially significant gathering. We have so much to honour and celebrate this year as we look back over the many achievements and milestones from the last 50 years of Métis governance. President Chartrand and the Métis government cabinet invites you to join us in this celebration. We look forward to seeing you at this momentous and historic occasion.
