Will Goodon

Will Goodon has built a career with a combination of community service & entrepreneurship. Tutored by his parents to look for opportunities in business, Will also seized the calling of working for the Métis Nation in the Métis Government in various capacities.

Partnering with his father, Will is an ownership partner in motel projects in southwestern Manitoba, with properties in Deloraine, Boissevain & Killarney.

In June 2014, Will was elected to the Métis Government in Manitoba – the Manitoba Métis Federation – as a provincial board representative for the Southwest Region. President Chartrand has subsequently appointed him as Minister of Housing & Property Management.

Will was instrumental in the recognition of Métis harvesting rights in Manitoba.  In 2004, he shot a duck in SW Manitoba & was charged by provincial conservation officers.  The court case lasted 4 1/2 years & in the end, Will was found not guilty because his harvesting rights were protected by s.35 of the Constitution Act.

Will lives on an acreage south of Brandon, Manitoba with his partner in life, Kelly, their two children, Hunter and Taylor, and two dogs, Wendy and Scout. In his spare time, he spends his days with his dad at the log cabin the two of them built in the Turtle Mountains, hunting & cutting firewood.
