MMF Announces New Cabinet at First Caucus Meeting of the New Term
 

WINNIPEG, MB  On July 14 and 15, the Manitoba Metis Federation (“MMF”) held its first Caucus Meeting since new and returning leadership was elected in May. At the meeting, MMF President David Chartrand announced a cabinet shuffle among his ministers.

“You have been given an honoured position within our Nation,” said President Chartrand. “The direction that I have taken is carefully thought out and well designed. We have the right people to take charge. Together we will continue to build the future of our Nation.”

In addition to ministerial changes, the MMF has made two key portfolio changes. The previous Culture, Heritage, Sports & Youth portfolio has been separated into two separate portfolios of Culture & Heritage; and Sports & Youth. A brand new French Language portfolio has also been established. The French Language portfolio leadership and new bilingual staff will help the MMF to better serve the needs of French-speaking Métis Citizens in Manitoba.
