BC Métis Federation Continues Commitment to True Transparency – Financial Statement Update

(Vancouver, BC) – BC Métis Federation is pleased to share the board approved financial statements dated July 1st, 2012 – June 30th, 2013. The BC Métis Federation financial statements demonstrate a responsible, transparent and accountable representative organization that is solvent and in strong financial standing, unlike the other provincial Métis representative organization in BC.

BC Metis Federation President Keith Henry stated, “The vision of our board and leadership is to demonstrate through action how we see the role of a Métis provincial representative organization. We remain committed to representing our members and partner communities and have shared resources wherever possible. There is no denying the results of the BC Métis Federation and our partner’s community’s work with modest resources. We have become the Métis community voice in British Columbia because of our ongoing commitments to timely communication, cultural events, and supporting communities in every way we can.”

BC Métis Federation President Henry added, “The financial statements do not account for the significant volunteerism by so many. In fact our leadership volunteers their time and this saves hundreds of thousands of dollars in resources.”

We can assure you that the leadership will continue this level of transparency and accountability. I believe this is a real testament to the values and beliefs of a dedicated group of leaders, communities, and members who want to make a difference for our people. BC Métis Federation is truly independent to speak as a real voice for the Métis people because we are doing this all on our own and everyone is to be commended for this. This is true self governance and proves why BC Métis Federation has grown so dramatically.”
