Connie Rogan, General Executive
I have been on Fry’s Beach, Lake Isle since we bought our lakefront cabin in the mid nineties. We renovated and modernized the old sixties cabin until we built our four season home in 2011. We’ve maintained and nurtured our natural shoreline as best we could and have tried to be water wise and not add to our already hypertrophic water. I’m grateful for the efforts made by groups like LILSA who champion and work to protect the lakes and waterways and educate residents and lake visitors.
Megan Thompson, Lac Ste Anne Métis Community Association Representative
Lac Ste. Anne Métis are a contemporary rights-bearing Métis community with deep connection to the landscape we have called home for more than two centuries. Lac Ste Anne Métis Community Association (“LSAMCA”) is a corporate entity designed and incorporated by members of the contemporary Lac Ste Anne Métis community to represent the Métis aboriginal rights and interests of the historic and contemporary Lac Ste. Anne Métis ("LSAM") community, a Section 35 (Constitution Act, 1982) Métis aboriginal rights-bearing (Powley) community.
Today, LSAMCA members reside at locations corresponding with lands and waters our Ancestors have used and occupied over many generations. As a kinship-based community, we participate in a shared culture inclusive of our distinctive customs and traditions, including the continued exercise of our Métis harvesting rights. These activities and way of life remain core to our identity as a modern-day, Section 35 (Constitution Act, 1982) rights bearing Métis people.
