Examines the feasibility of linking a sample of the Mantioba Metis Federation (MMF) membership list to Manitoba Health and CancerCare Manitoba databases and to use the resulting linked records to provide estimates of the health status of the Manitoba's Metis population and their utilization of medical services. Demonstrates that the findings suggest that their health profile is closer to that of the First Nation people, that it is to the general Manitoba population.
