December 12, 2023

With a commitment to strengthen communities and their local chapters, the Métis Nation-Saskatchewan (MN-S) announced a $7 million community investment to support language revitalization, culture programming, and land-based wellness programs, directly to the MN-S locals.

The announcement was made by MN-S Chief Executive Officer Richard Quintal during day two of the 2023 Métis Nation Legislative Assembly (MNLA) and marks historic empowerment for the MN-S locals, said Quintal.

“This is monumental progress that will propel us forward as a community and government,” he said.

During the announcement, Quintal said funding for local programming includes up to $50,000 for opportunities in early learning and childcare, and up to $10,000 will be allocated to support language revitalization programs and language camps in local communities.

“We are changing the way we deliver our programs and services to include direct funding opportunities to our locals,” he said. “It is an investment in our citizens, our community, and our future.”

There will also be funding for social infrastructure to prevent, and reduce homelessness for Métis citizens, as well as funding for land-based learning.
