Métis Land Scrip in Alberta

In 2003, the Supreme Court of Canada stated that “the history of scrip speculation and devaluation is a sorry chapter in our nation’s history.” (R. v. Blais)

Métis Land Scrip were coupons that the Government gave to individual Métis to acknowledge their land claims. The system was broken, and made sure that Métis rights were extinguished, families were pushed out of their homes and the Nation was dispossessed of their Homelands. Almost all the lands promised to Métis through scrip were stolen by Canadian settlers, including Government officials.
