The Standing Senate Committee on Aboriginal People has released their report called The People Who Own Themselves. The Sou'West Nova Métis Community is included in the report.
On 27 March 2012, the Standing Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples began a study on issues respecting the legal and political recognition of Métis identity in Canada, including: legal, political and cultural definitions of the Métis; and processes for enumeration and registration of the Métis. Other matters in relation to the broader question of identity, and which may be explored as part of the study, include: the eligibility of the Métis for existing federal programs and services; and the exercise of Métis Aboriginal rights, including those that may be related to lands and harvesting. Sou'West Nova Métis Council lawyer, Daphne Williamson spoke to the committee on behalf of the Sou'West Nova Métis community on November 6th, 2012.
