Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a member?
Membership to NSMA, is gained through careful screening of all Métis applications using the Powley Test criteria as adjudicated (2003) by the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) and contained within the NSMA Application Form. The NSMA’s rights bearing Métis membership and led by long time President William A. Enge, in settlement of outstanding reconciliation with the Crown, has provided Canada and the Government of the NWT (GNWT), it’s “Statement of Claim” for a “land claim process” and this claim is presently “under review” by these Governments.
