MNBC explores new Métis postsecondary institution model, opportunities to strengthen language


The Métis Nation British Columbia is exploring a new Métis postsecondary institution model, as well as opportunities to strengthen the Michif language, supported by a new $1.65M investment over the next three years from the Government of British Columbia. “We know how important language is to the preservation of culture and the exploration of a new Métis post-secondary institution model is one important way we can help support these efforts,” commented BC Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Murray Rankin. An additional $145K will go toward expanding financial supports for Métis postsecondary students.
