Rupertsland Institute congratulates Métis Nation of Alberta President and Rupertsland Institute Board of Governor Interim Chair, Audrey Poitras, on receiving an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from Concordia University of Edmonton on May 28, 2022.
As the longest serving and first female President, Dr. Poitras has inspired us with her commitment to the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA). Poitras is one of the highest profile Métis women in Canada and has been an advocate for Métis rights.
President Poitras has successfully negotiated ground-breaking partnerships with colleges and universities across Alberta, for Métis Endowment funds just over $30 million and has been an integral part in the creation of Rupertsland Institute – Métis Centre of Excellence, which promotes education, training, and research for Métis scholars.
Congratulations Dr. Poitras on your well-deserved honorary degree.
