WELCOME

MÉTIS NATION OF ALBERTA REGION 3

Supporting our community by providing tools, resources and connection.

Welcome
I would like to welcome everyone to the Métis Nation of Alberta – Region 3’s new website.
I would like to take the time to thank the countless efforts and patience of our members during the
COVID Pandemic. We wouldn’t be here without the dedicated support of our volunteers, staff and our
elders.
Through the MNAR3’s website, we will inform our Southern Alberta Métis community on events,
initiatives, programs and projects in our region and across the Homeland.
