Leaders say new agreement will help Alberta Métis Federation

Over the past couple of years, seven Métis communities have broken away from the Métis Nation of Alberta.

They formed their own organization called the Alberta Métis Federation (AMF).

On July 21, the Manitoba Metis Federation signed a memorandum of understanding with the AMF.

Leaders from both organizations say the agreement will help push the AMF forward.
