The BC Métis Federation (BCMF) is a non-profit association that works to ensure the well-being of it’s growing membership across British Columbia (BC). Through capacity building, advocacy, and cultural revitalization efforts, BCMF works to advance Métis knowledge and self-determination, and to encourage the use of the Michif language. The BCMF supports Métis individuals and communities in every region of the province.
Community is at the core of Métis culture. It is through our shared time, experience, and ceremony that we can deeply connect with our ancestors, and each other. In operation for a decade, BCMF has steadily grown membership across the province and advocates on behalf of these members to all levels of government. We invite all self-identifying Métis to consider membership, and reclaim their ancestry.
