Of the Aboriginal population in British Columbia, 33.0% (89,405) are Métis. (From Statistics Canada).
"In May 2006, the Province and the Métis Nation British Columbia signed the Métis Nation Relationship Accord (MNRA). The MNRA formalized the relationship between the Province and the Métis people of British Columbia, identifying mutual goals to close the gap in quality of life between Métis people and other British Columbians."
