The BC Metis Federation representatives continue to gain recognition by governments as a legitimate representative structure in British Columbia. As such the BC Metis Federation was invited to provide a submission and answer a number of questions regarding the current Metis definition and political structures in Canada earlier today. A comprehensive document was submitted to the Senate Committee who was examining and reporting on the legal and political recognition of Metis identity in Canada.
A copy of the BC Metis Federation submitted documentation is attached for review and the Senate Committee asked a number of key questions. BC Metis Federation will ensure submitted testimony is posted on the BC Metis Federation website when available.
