BC Métis Federation signs new agreement in Clearwater

  • Oct. 21, 2018 12:30 p.m.


BC Métis Federation leadership and the North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Center Society (NTACCS) recently reached a new agreement to sign a statement of cooperation.

The agreement recognizes the role of each organization as NTACCS works to represent the need of Métis members in Clearwater and BC Métis Federation desires to make sure the voice of the Métis members from Clearwater is included in the governance and project delivery of the BC Métis Federation.

NTACCS has been providing cultural services in Clearwater for years and has a significant number of members supporting the culture and local needs of their Métis people.

“Thank you to the executive director Cindy Wilgosh and the board of NTACCS for agreeing to work together for the commitment and trust to work together; Cindy has provided strong Métis leadership and her commitment to cultural education and events in Clearwater,” said Keith Henry, president of the BC Métis Federation.

“I know we will continue to strengthen our relationships together and having NTACCS representative Cindy Wilgosh agree to continue her role on our provincial organization signals a realm trust and commitment—we have a lot to address including the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, which is a major local issue for their organization and through this agreement we will continue to advance this work.”
