Abstract:

Métis peoples hold a central place in the history and development of Canada with their origins emanating from First Nations and European unions. As traders and explorers moved from east to west across what is now Canada, what evolved was a unique and rich Métis identity and culture that are key components of the origins of Canada. Métis represent one of three identified Aboriginal peoples in Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 (Section 35). Rights held by Métis peoples under Section 35 are constitutionally recognized and affirmed by the Constitution of Canada.
