About Clément:

Clément (Clem) Chartier, a citizen of the Métis Nation, was born at Ile a la Crosse, Saskatchewan and raised in the nearby Métis village of Buffalo Narrows. He is a lawyer, writer, lecturer and activist and has served in both political and administrative capacities with numerous Indigenous peoples’ organizations nationally and internationally. President Chartier is best known for his work on Indigenous rights. In 2003, President Chartier was elected President of the Métis Nation and is currently serving his fifth-term. A seasoned political figure and recipient of a Queen’s Counsel distinction for his work in law, President Chartier has pushed the Métis Nation’s rights agenda at various levels of Canada’s judicial system and continues to provide counsel in on-going Métis-specific cases. Focused on strengthening the Métis Nation from its core – President Chartier’s goal during the next few years is to re-locate the Métis Nations’ government to the historic Red River by 2020.
