Metis Nation B.C.


The Métis Provincial Council of British Columbia was first incorporated under the Society’s Act on October 23, 1996. In 2003 the Métis leadership ratified the "Métis Nation British Columbia"​ (MNBC) Constitution thereby establishing a new Métis Nation governance structure. Since 2003, the Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) leadership has implemented a number of institutions of governance such as the Senate, Métis Nation Governing Assembly, Youth representation, Women’s representation, an Electoral Act, and an objectively verifiable citizenship process. MNBC represents thirty-eight(38) Métis Chartered Communities in British Columbia (map) and is mandated to develop and enhance opportunities for Métis communities by implementing culturally relevant social and economic programs and services.

The Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) represents nearly 90,000 self-identified Métis people in British Columbia, of that, nearly 18,000 are provincially registered Métis Citizens with MNBC. The Métis National Council and the Provincial Government of British Columbia, as well as the Federal Government of Canada, recognizes the MNBC as the official governing organization for Métis in BC.
