The Charter Agreements along with the Community Code and Community Electoral Code are the policy documents Community Councils refer to when holding mandatory community elections. These documents also outline the rules and regulations for conducting council business, and for ensuring accountability through good fiscal management.
The number of Métis Charter Communities in the province continues to grow. The Community Relations arm of the Lands, Resources and Consultation Branch is actively engaged in the work of the Councils and helps to ensure they have the resources and expertise they need to fulfill their mandate. The interests of the Community Councils are represented at the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario (PCMNO) through one of nine Regional Councillors.
