KAMLOOPS, B.C. — The Metis community in British Columbia has signed an agreement with the provincial government to assume authority over Metis child and family welfare by 2021.

Metis Nation B.C. president Clara Morin Dal Col and Minister of Children and Family Development Katrine Conroy signed the joint commitment at a ceremony in Kamloops.

A ministry news release says the main objectives are to significantly reduce the number of Metis children and youth in government care, support family preservation, and work toward the transfer of authority over B.C.’s Metis children and families to Metis Nation B.C.

Once the transfer is complete, the ministry will be able to refer Metis children and families to Metis-specific child and family services as established by the Metis group.
