About Us

Lac Ste. Anne Métis are a contemporary rights-bearing Métis community with deep connection to the landscape we have called home for more than two centuries. Lac Ste Anne Métis Community Association (“LSAMCA”) is a corporate entity designed and incorporated by members of the contemporary Lac Ste Anne Métis community to represent the Métis aboriginal rights and interests of the historic and contemporary Lac Ste. Anne Métis ("LSAM") community, a Section 35 (Constitution Act, 1982) Métis aboriginal rights-bearing (Powley) community.

Today, LSAMCA members reside at locations corresponding with lands and waters our Ancestors have used and occupied over many generations. As a kinship-based community, we participate in a shared culture inclusive of our distinctive customs and traditions, including the continued exercise of our Métis harvesting rights. These activities and way of life remain core to our identity as a modern-day, Section 35 (Constitution Act, 1982) rights bearing Métis people.
