Minister: Andrew Carrier

The Métis Community Liaison Department assists Métis individuals, families and Elders to find services and resources in their communities: locally, regionally and provincially.

Program Areas

Client & Family Support

Working with Métis children and families on a variety of issues such as employment and income assistance, outreach services, referral & advocacy, reunification, Elder support, income tax, repatriation, Christmas celebrations, and community development.

Bereavement Fund

This program, supported by fundraising and individual donations, helps families in need of financial support with expenses involved with the loss of a Métis loved one.

Métis Senior Vision Care Initiative

This is a program to aid those Métis Seniors that require assistance in managing their eye care by arranging eye examinations and ordering prescription eyeglasses.

Prescription Drug Program

This program's initiative pays for Pharmacare eligible prescription drugs. The Métis Community Liaison Department is responsible for the application process. Learn more

Memorial Service Financial Support Program

The purpose of the Memorial Service Financial Support Program is to assist our deceased Citizen's family with costs associated with the planning of a funeral or memorial service of their loved one.

Families could qualify for up to $5,000.00 to cover basic costs associated with funeral home expenses. To inquire about the parameters of the program, please contact your regional Metis Community Liaison Department worker.

Without the commitment and dedication of the MMF Board of Directors lobbying the provincial and federal government, programs such as the MCLD would not be a reality. Through the successes of our program brought about by your financial assistance and support, we have been able to progress and provide quality and culturally appropriate services to our Métis children, families and elders at the local level across the province.
