By working in collaboration with respected organizations that share our values, Parks Canada is able to better deliver its promise to Canadians by continuing to be a world leader in the protection and presentation of Canada's natural and cultural heritage. We believe in sharing leadership and working with our partners to offer unique, inspiring opportunities for Canadians to discover our treasured places and to achieve extraordinary results.

We are proud to be formally collaborating with the following partners:

Louis Riel Institute and Manitoba Metis Federation




The Louis Riel Institute is mandated by the Manitoba Metis Federation as the authority responsible for Métis education and culture in Manitoba. The Louis Riel Institute advances the education of Métis people, and is responsible for promoting the values, culture, heritage and history of Métis in Manitoba.

Parks Canada, in collaboration with the Louis Riel Institute (Manitoba Metis Federation Inc.) and other Métis organizations in Manitoba, has created Stories from Riel House, a portable display to promote awareness and understanding of Riel House National Historic Site and the Métis stories told there. Parks Canada and the Louis Riel Institute have partnered to make the display available, for educational purposes, to interested organizations (e.g. schools, libraries, community centres, festivals and museums) in communities throughout Manitoba. Both Parks Canada and the Louis Riel Institute will also use the display for their respective organization’s outreach education programs.
