Aboriginal Community

Peel is the traditional territory of the Mississauga’s of the New Credit. There is no Reserve or Friendship Centre in Peel; however, there are Aboriginal groups that provide cultural services, programs and events for the growing Aboriginal population (First Nation, Inuit and Métis) in Peel:

Credit River Métis Council (CRMC)
Local Councils are an important communication hub for MNO and play a significant role in fostering community empowerment and development for Métis citizens living within the geographic territory of that council. The Credit River Métis Council (CRMC) serves the Citizens of the Métis Nation of Ontario in a very large, densely populated area that is an urban and rural mix. The CRMC area covers major Cities and Towns such as Bolton, Brampton, Caledon, Erin, Georgetown, Halton Hills, Malton, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville and Orangeville.

Métis Nation of Ontario(MNO)
Métis Nation of Ontario was created to represent Métis people and communities in Ontario that are a part of the Métis Nation. MNO delivers programs and services to its citizens through these branches: Health and Wellness; Education and Training; Housing; Lands, Resources and Consultation; Economic Development.
