About Our Policies
The Metis Settlements General Council was established to have a land-base in order to provide for the preservation and enhancement of Metis culture and identity, as well as to enable the Metis to attain self-government. MSGC makes policies that are binding on the MSGC. Policies are developed in consultation with the Minister of Indigenous Relations, have the same effect as Alberta law and are published in the Alberta Gazette.
Each Settlement is empowered to enact local bylaws and policies, guided by the policies enacted by MSGC, to govern the community.
