THE LEADERS OF THE MNOC
The Métis Nation of Canada (MNOC) was incorporated in 2009 and merged with the Council of the First Métis People of Canada (CFMPC) in 2018. Our governance structure and governance instruments ensure that leadership and representation of our citizens meet the highest standards of integrity, honesty, accountability, and transparency. Anything less is unacceptable in our eyes. Our leaders are professionals from various business, public, private, and government sectors, with decades of practical experience, skills, and dedicated volunteer services to their communities.

Bryce Fequet, MNOC Founder
Bryce founded the Métis Nation of Canada (MNOC) January 21, 2009 as the first National Metis Organization to represent Metis Citizens from all regions of Canada. Bryce’s Mother and Father raised their children to love one another, to help those that need help and to be kind and stand up for what you believe in. This kind of upbringing resulted in Bryce being very community oriented and from 2009-2013 he was the Mayor of his Municipality.
He was elected the first Warden of the Municipal Regional County (MRC) du Golfe du St. Laurent 2010. Bryce received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal 2012 and Friendship Gift Medal from the Canadian Aboriginal Veterans and Serving Members Association of Canada 2019.
Bryce’s passion and determination, which was passed to him by his Aboriginal and European ancestors, motivates him to work hard and continue the fight for the national recognition of all Metis Citizens in Canada.
