Who Can Join?
British Columbia is divided up into seven regions. The Metis Nation of Greater Victoria falls within
region one which is Vancouver Island. If you live within the Capital Region you are eligible to apply for membership. If you
live in one of the outlying communities Sooke to Port Renfrew, Langford, Sidney and the Gulf Islands you may also be
eligible for membership. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions regarding membership criteria.
Metis Nation of Greater Victoria uses the definition of Metis adopted by the Metis National Council as of
September 27, 2002.
Metis means: A person who self-identifies as Metis, is of historic Metis Nation Ancestry, is distinct from
other Aboriginal peoples and is accepted by the Metis Nation.
Genealogy is the foundation of the membership process. Our Family Researcher, Stan Hulme has been doing Metis
genealogy for nine years. He is a member of the Manitoba Genealogical Society and the Orkney Family Genealogical Society.
Stan has done genealogical research and verification for Mid Island, North Island, Fort Vermilion and Calgary locals. We,
at Metis Nation of Greater Victoria, would like to thank Stan for his many hours of dedication and commitment in
making our local a success.
