Métis Nation - Saskatchewan


Métis Nation - Saskatchewan

The Métis Nation - Saskatchewan is an organization that represents the approximately 80,000 Métis people in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is affiliated with the Métis National Council.

The organization is led by an elected Provincial Métis Council. The Council is composed of 4 Executive Members, and 12 Regional Representatives. The organization has divided the province into twelve regions, and members within each region vote for their regional representative to the council. Within the twelve regions exist roughly 130 Métis Locals, a smaller organizational structure with an elected president. All of the above meet annually with representatives from the organization's youth and women departments to discuss matters affecting the Métis Nation in the province. There is also a president of the Métis Nation — Saskatchewan who holds one seat on the Board of Governors of the Métis National Council.
