Winnipeg, MB – Today MMF President David Chartrand was awarded the Governor General’s Sovereign Medal for Volunteers. The medal was presented by Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon at Government House.

“I am truly honoured and humbled to receive this medal,” said President Chartrand. “But it is not a medal meant for me alone. I share it with our Metis Government, who helps to achieve the vision I have for our Citizens. I share it with the MMF staff who run the programs and services. And I share it with our Metis Citizens because they have allowed me the privilege to lead our Metis Government for 20 years.”

The Sovereign Medal is presented to individuals who contribute to the betterment of a community. President Chartrand was selected for his work in strengthening the Métis community in both rural and urban communities.
