Commemorating the signing of the Métis Government Recognition and Self-Government Agreement

The Self-Government Agreement recognized that the Métis communities represented by the MNO hold the inherent right to self-government and laid the groundwork for the next steps in implementing the agreement.
On February 24, 2023, the Métis Government Recognition and Self-Government Implementation Agreement was signed, which builds on the Self-Government Agreement. On this day, Canada officially recognized the MNO as the Indigenous government representing its citizens and Métis communities within Ontario.
“This Agreement, along with other such agreements signed with Métis governments, is a key part of Canada’s commitment to work with Indigenous partners to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.”  - Government of Canada
