Upon return from WWII, our Métis Veterans did not receive the same supports, resources, or benefits that were originally promised to them, which were routinely given to non-Métis Veterans. Many of them were discriminated against by Veterans Affairs Canada and denied an economic foundation to rebuild their lives upon return home. 

Many of our Second World War (WWII) Métis Nation Veterans have passed, and very few are still living. Time is of the essence to identify those living and present them with their Recognition Payment as soon as possible. Distributing Recognition Payments have begun, and already thirty (30) of our WWII Métis Nation Veterans have received their payments to date. We continue to identify and contact WWII Métis Nation Veterans and their families across the nation.
