Metis Identification and Membership
The Metis Nation of Alberta manages the membership reporting system for Metis people wishing to join the MNA. Please note the Government of Alberta does not issue MNA membership cards or determine Metis identity. The definition for membership in the MNA is set out in the society’s bylaws.
The MNA has the Metis Identification and Registry and a Genealogy Resource Centre at its head office in Edmonton. It helps people who are researching Metis family ancestry and aids in MNA membership research.
