CANADA PENSION PLAN and OLD AGE SECURITY PROGRAMS

The Government of Canada has released updated information on the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS) programs. Of particular interest is information on the Guaranteed Income Supplement and Child Rearing Drop-out Provision, under the Canada Pension Plan.

The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that it provides the necessary support for seniors, in particular those with lower income who are the most vulnerable, persons with disabilities, aboriginals, and people who speak neither of Canada's two official languages.

The government has asked the Canadian Metis Council to distribute information to its members. Brochures can be obtained through the registry office at 2395 Route 385 Blue Mountain Bend, New Brunswick, E7G 3K6
or phone 506-356-7596 to have information mailed.

Information can also be obtained through the government website at www.sdc.gc.ca

Mission Statement

The Canadian Métis Council (CMC) is dedicated to the concerns of the Métis people regarding culture, harvesting rights, education, health, youth, justice and other related issues. CMC is also dedicated to the promotion of Métis culture and history. CMC also encourages involvement of our members with other political and cultural organizations.


~With Rights Comes Responsibility~

The Canadian Métis Council was established in 1997 to further the economic, political, spiritual and cultural aspirations of Canada's Métis people.

The Canadian Métis Council is comprised of over 50 community councils and affiliate Métis organizations in every province of Canada. As well, treaties have been signed with Métis organizations in the United States.

Governed by a Board of Directors, the Canadian Métis Council is a non-profit corporation concerned with cultural issues, harvesting rights, education, health, youth, justice and other related issues that directly effect the Métis people of North America.

Persons who believe that they have Aboriginal ancestry are invited to submit an application to CMC's Registry Office. An application form can be printed from this site and mailed to the Registry Office along with an application fee of $100 Cdn, made payable to the Canadian Métis Council.

It is important that the applicant provide proof of Aboriginal ancestry. Guidelines are provided with the application.
