Manitoba Metis FederationManitoba Metis Federation
The Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) is the official democratic and self-governing political representative for the Métis Nation’s Manitoba Métis Community. The Manitoba Métis are Canada’s Negotiating Partner in Confederation and the Founders of the Province of Manitoba.
The MMF was founded in 1967 by a group of forward-thinking Métis who realized that it was necessary to stand up and fight for the rights of the Métis people of Manitoba. The MMF has since grown to over 200 staff throughout the province and is successfully promoting, protecting and advancing the political, social and economic interests of its members.
The Federation negotiates with provincial and federal governments to access funding to provide services to the Métis people of Manitoba.
