Builds on strong track record in delivering major gains for MNBC citizens and providing strong leadership for entire Métis Nation as MNC’s Minister for Health and Minister for Culture, Heritage and Families.

(September 22, 2020) Clara Morin Dal Col was re-elected President of Métis Nation British Columbia in MNBC’s General Election yesterday.

President Morin Dal Col received a strong mandate from Métis Nation citizens in British Columbia to continue working for Métis Nation citizens in B.C and across the homeland through her service at MNC as National Minister for Health and  National Minister for Culture, Heritage and Families.

She was first elected to the office of MNBC President in September 2016. During her first term, President Morin Dal Col signed the Canada-Métis Nation Accord with the Trudeau government along with the presidents of MNC and other MNC Governing Members. Under the Accord, MNBC was able to pursue its priorities and negotiate unprecedented and substantial federal funding  for housing, early learning and child development, post-secondary education, the Michif language, and economic development in B.C.

Clara Morin Dal Col was born in Ile a La Crosse, Saskatchewan where Michif was the first language spoken at home. As MNC Minister of Culture, Heritage and Families, she played an important role in the development of federal legislation to revitalize and promote Indigenous languages including Michif as well as federal legislation to enable Métis governments to assume jurisdiction over child and family services.  As National Minister of Health, she will assume an important role in MNC’s work with the federal government on co-developing distinctions-based Indigenous health legislation and the development and delivery of health services for the Métis Nation communities.

MNC’ s National Spokesperson and MMF President David Chartrand welcomed the election results in BC.

“I am very pleased with Clara’s re-election. She is a true Métis nationalist who has really delivered for her people in B.C. and has stood up for the Métis Nation as a whole through her important work at the MNC.”
