(Vancouver, BC) The BC Métis Federation is preparing for their fifth year of operations after forming in June of 2011. The fiscal year is defined as April 1st – March 31st as per the bylaws. Since 2011 BC Métis Federation has continued to build in terms of advocacy, cultural programming, and sustainability.
This past week the BC Métis Federation board met and has since posted the minutes from the meeting which includes approval of the 2015-2016 operational planning. Therefore today the BC Métis Federation is pleased to release the final version of the 2015-2016 operational plans. The 2015-2016 operational plan is a balance of cultural and community investments while supporting community partners where possible. The plan also represents the largest investments by the board since incorporation in 2011.
BC Métis Federation President Henry stated, “I am pleased to release this 2015-2016 operational budget today which is achievable for the BC Métis Federation while we continue to rebuild Métis governance in BC. Our board has ensured our investments are reasonable while maintaining operations and cultural support. We are finalizing all funding and it appears this year will be another strong year for the organization.”
BC Métis Federation President Henry concluded, “I will be reviewing the financial plan on Métis Coffee Talk this week and encourage members to watch this Thursday at 7:30 PM to get more insight. There is no doubt that BC Métis Federation has made and continues to make significant progress and communications for very modest annual resources. Our leadership is very proud of the ongoing success!”
