Since its inception in 1928, the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) is the Métis Government for Métis Albertans with its geographical and legal boundaries being the province of Alberta. The MNA is governed by a democratically elected Provincial Council, comprised of a Provincial President, a Vice-President, and six regional Presidents and Vice-Presidents. This Council works toward the mandate of the MNA, supporting practices of transparency, accountability and inclusiveness for Métis Albertans in governments policy and decision-making processes. The MNA promotes and facilitates the advancement of Métis people through self-reliance, self-determination and self-management. As per the Métis National Council, Métis means a person who self-identifies as a Métis, is distinct from other aboriginal peoples, is of historic Métis Nation ancestry, and is accepted by the Métis Nation.
