The National Métis Veterans’ Memorial Monument was unveiled on July 19, 2014. It is the first memorial dedicated to Métis Veterans. The ceremony was part of the Back to Batoche festival of 2014. The monument includes eight blue granite slabs on a concrete base and panels with the names of over 5,000 Métis Veterans.

The Métis Memorial Gardens was unveiled in 2013. Twenty-five five-foot trees were planted in a U-shape and a flower garden was planted in the center. 

Fundraising was managed by the Gabriel Dumont Institute. Through the Community War Memorial Program, the Federal Government provided up to $50,000 of the $300,000 cost. Funding came from the Gabriel Dumont Institute, Veterans Affairs Canada, the Clarence Campeau Development Fund, the Saskatchewan Community Initiatives Fund and donations from individuals, businesses and service organizations.
