November 20, 2019

The University of Saskatchewan has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Métis Nation-Saskatchewan (MN-S) to identify common priorities and explore mutually beneficial opportunities. Specifically, the agreement aims to improve the education status of Métis people, remove barriers to Métis postsecondary education, and close the university achievement gaps between Métis and non-Indigenous populations. “With continued community partnering, such as today’s announcement with the University of Saskatchewan, Métis youth can confidently follow the examples set by individuals like James McKay, Howard Adams and other Métis leaders, thinkers and achievers,” said MN-S President Glen McCallum.
