The Metis Nation – Saskatchewan is taking the province to court over its use and reliance on the 2010 First Nation and Metis Consultation Policy framework.
The MN-S wants the policy declared invalid. It also wants the court of Queen’s Bench to declare the province’s reliance on the policy, dishonourable.
The Metis Nation claims the province is using the Policy to avoid its duty to consult. The Nation wants an order that the province identify and disclose all matters since 2010 that the province should have given notice and consulted on. The nation also wants costs, damages, and other – what it calls – “appropriate” relief.
In its claim, the MN-S outlines why it believes the policy is inconsistent with the province’s constitutional duty to consult.
