2019 MMF Annual Report

Message from the Métis Government

As President of the Manitoba Metis Federation it is my privilege to invite you to join our 2019 Annual General Assembly (AGA) as a sponsor, tradeshow participant or both. The AGA will take place September 20th to 22nd, 2019. This website contains everything you need to take part.

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.

The Métis Nation is the fastest growing Indigenous population in Canada.

The amount of people who attend grows each year.

With so many diverse alternatives to choose from you will find the opportunity that matches your business goals. 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 today!

I invite you to join us as a guest and partner as we celebrate our Métis leadership defending our Métis Nation, advancing our rights, and protecting our people to create a strong future for all Manitobans. Your contribution helps to enhance the participation of our Youth, Elders and Citizens.
