Departments, Portfolios & Affiliates

Certain issues are of great importance to the Métis people of Manitoba and require additional attention. This dedicated and focused attention is accomplished through the Manitoba Métis Federation's portfolio structure. There are two types of portfolios: those that are supported by a department and those that exist in policy only.

The types of portfolios that are developed and maintained by the Federation are determined by the Métis people. Through their representatives, members communicate to the Board of Directors which issues are important and require a specialized focus. For example, the Federation recently established two new portfolios in response to member concerns. The Manitoba Hydro and Environment portfolios deal with issues surrounding proposed hydro developments and the preservation of our natural resources.

Below are a list of current MMF portfolios and the executives dedicated to each.
