Métis Nation of Greater Victoria is recognized by The Métis Nation of British Columbia as the Chartered Community for the Capital Regional District. This community covers the Gulf Islands, West Shore Communities, and Port Renfrew to the Saanich Peninsula.

The southern tip of Vancouver Island, the San Juan, and the Gulf Islands are the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples. MNGV acknowledges, and offers heartfelt appreciation and thanks to, the Lekwungen people, past and present, for allowing us to inhabit this land.
