The Métis Nation of Ontario has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to advance reconciliation with the federal government that could lead to a historic land settlement. “The anticipated framework agreement would establish a formal negotiations process based on mutually agreeable subject matters, including Métis self-government, lands, rights and outstanding claims against the Crown,” the parties announced, with September 2017 as the deadline to arrive at a framework agreement. “If the parties are able to develop a mutually acceptable framework agreement through the exploratory discussion table, the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada will then take measures aimed at obtaining a formal negotiation mandate,” the MOU explained.
