This petition had 112 supporters

On April 14th 2016, Daniels v. Canada, Supreme Court  of Canada DECLARED that Métis & Non-Status peoples be FULLY RECOGNIZED as "Indians" under the Constitution Act, 1967 s. 91(24). 

The Daniels case was designed to unblock the long-standing stalemate concerning whether Ottawa or the provinces were responsible for non-status Indians and Métis peoples. Now that the Supreme Court has made this important declaration, we are calling on the federal government to begin negotiations for programs and services for the Forgotten Peoples.

We are calling for a human rights-based approach to negotiating the rights, interests and needs of all Métis and non-status Indians based on our full and effective participation.

We are the Forgotten People; Together with the Aboriginal Congress of Alberta, our people will have a voice. Those critical ‘next steps’ have begun.

We want our people informed, a meeting place in every city across the nation. This is our request. the foundation has been built, after years of waiting, we feel the time is now to improve our nation to nation relationship with our off reserve & urban Indians. We post regular updates from all over the country. people can sign up and stay informed. COURT DECISION IN COMMENTS_ SIGN PETITION! #metis #nonstatus #urban #indigenous
