BC Metis Federation would like to thank Indigenous Services Canada for their ongoing support of our members and Partner Communities as they continue to feel the impacts of COVID-19.
We have received a fourth round of funding and are working with our Community Leaders to ensure that our members and their families are taken care of. All 8 of our partner communities will be receiving lump sum payments, which they will disperse as needed in their respective communities.
BCMF will continue to support individuals and their families who have previously applied for funding and support. Currently, 350 families and members will be receiving additional funds.
Please be advised that Kevin Henry is calling members to confirm contact information and mailing addresses as well as conducting general outreach. Please ensure that your contact information is up to date by calling our COVID19 Project Assistant, Kevin Henry at 604-838-5049.
