MN-S announces $3.5M investment in ELCC Community Enhancement Program

Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN-S) has announced a $3.5M investment into a new Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Community Enhancement Program. Through the program, Métis Locals will be provided with up to $50K to support the enhancement or development of early learning programs and services such as Métis language programs, Elder programming, and land-based education. The investments will help provide Métis children with better access to high-quality education. “Métis language programs, learning from our Elders, and land-based learning leads to Métis children grounded in our Métis culture, values and language,” said MN–S President Glen McCallum. “Gifting our children with pride in their Métis Identity strengthens our Métis Nation.”
