MMF launches $90M postsecondary education accord

February 11, 2020

The Manitoba Metis Federation has officially launched a 10-year, $90M postsecondary education accord delivered in partnership with the federal government. The agreement allows students with Métis heritage to receive up to $5K for tuition, books, travel support, and living allowances in this academic year. As mandated by the federation, students must undergo a mandatory Métis history class prior to receiving the bursary. "We know education is crucial to live a life filled with healthy outcomes," said MMF President David Chartrand. "Education also pushes the Métis Nation forward and today we are empowering these students to take control of their futures." CBC | CTV (MB)
