Membership in a Métis organization or Settlement refers to whether or not a person is a registered member of a Métis organization or Settlement. This includes organizations that are a signatory under the Canada-Métis Nation Accord of 2017 (Métis Nation of Ontario, Manitoba Metis Federation, Métis Nation - Saskatchewan, Métis Nation of Alberta, Métis Nation British Columbia) or one of the eight Metis Settlements established by the Alberta Metis Settlements Act in 1990 (Buffalo Lake Metis Settlement, East Prairie Metis Settlement, Elizabeth Metis Settlement, Fishing Lake Metis Settlement, Gift Lake Metis Settlement, Kikino Metis Settlement, Paddle Prairie Metis Settlement, Peavine Metis Settlement).
Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programs.
Respondents can also provide a write-in response of a Métis organization or Settlement other than those of the Canada-Métis Nation Accord or the Metis Settlements Act.
Only one response category can be reported for this variable.
'Membership in a Métis organization or Settlement' is derived from responses to the Membership in a Métis organization or Settlement question and the Indigenous group question. Non-Indigenous persons are classified in the category 'Not a member of a Métis organization or Settlement'.
