A culturally relevant GBA+ framework includes the historical, political, cultural and current realities for Métis populations.

Based on LFMO’s research, a Métis-specific GBA+ framework must:

  • Keep engagement and consultation at the center of the process and must include diverse Métis people and communities.
  • Engage Elders and youth
  • Acknowledge that culture is an evolving entity.
  • Be fluid, flexible and adaptable.
  • Utilize a Métis worldview, with careful attention paid to defining equality and equity from a Métis worldview, taking into account historical Métis women’s roles, and acknowledging that gender and culture are inseparable.
  • Be distinctions-based, recognizing the diversity between Canada’s recognized Indigenous groups and within Métis populations, as well as emphasizing the need for collaboration and building upon existing frameworks.
  • Challenge biases as a focal point and equally value Indigenous and mainstream knowledge throughout its application.
