Vice-President: Deputy Grand Chief Glen Hare
A citizen of the M’Chigeeng First Nation on Manitoulin Island, Glen Hare is serving his second term as Deputy Grand Chief of the Anishinabek Nation.
A fluent speaker of Anishinaabe-mowin (Ojibwe language), Deputy Grand Chief Hare recently served six consecutive terms as Chief of M’Chigeeng First Nation and two terms as the Regional Grand Chief for the Lake Huron Region. Deputy Grand Chief Hare is an outspoken advocate for First Nations child welfare and customary care laws. He has been critical of the government imposition of non-Native child protection legislation and favours the establishment of our own child and family service laws, interventions and First Nations foster homes.
Deputy Grand Chief Hare currently sits on the Anishinabek/Ontario Resource Management Council (AORMC), an innovative partnership, policy and discussion forum between the Anishinabek Nation and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
