Our goal is to be a thriving Métis community for all Métis citizens and their families. You can become a community member if you are verified by the registrar at Metis Nation BC (MNBC) and also required to be accepted by the Two Rivers community to receive an (MNBC) membership. MNBC sends an email to verify this before releasing membership.

If you need assistance to complete your documentation for MNBC Citizenship, please email the membership director. You can find more information about registering with MNBC in their citizenship area of the site.

Please note: at this point in time our office is on-line only. Please contact us by email at info@tworiversmetis.ca
