In what is perhaps the most forward-thinking move by an MNC provincial, at the 2014 Annual General Assembly, the Manitoba Métis Federation Citizens declared and passed a resolution stating it is no longer necessary to be a Manitoba resident to be an MMF Citizen.
The Resolution #2 (of November 16, 2014) declared that: "The Manitoba Métis are highly mobile, and dispersed across and beyond the Métis Nation Homeland. We are a community based on identity, history, family, economic, and other relationships. Our families and lands go well past the historic and present-day borders of Manitoba. Our people do not want their families split up by arbitrary and artificial borders - to be defined by boundaries not Métis-made nor of Métis-choosing."
