The Indian Registry Department is responsible for:
- Issuing Status Cards for members of Tŝilhqot'in communities and other Nations;
- Registering the birth of a child; and
- Band transfers.
You should visit TNG if your status card:
- Is paper laminated;
- Has expired;
- Has a picture that no longer resembles you
Information on the new Secure Certificate of Indian Status (SCIS) card: "Delay in Rollout for SCIS Card!"
You can download forms for registry at the INAC Revenues, Registry and Band Governance Website.
Robert Poole, Indian Registration & Band Lists (IRBL) Manager and Chris McDonell, the Executive Director of the Secure Certificate of Indian Status (SCIS) Task Force, confirmed that the regional offices would not be given the ability to process SCIS applications.
There was no mention of when the IRAs would become involved. In the interim, there will be a number of mobile SCIS Application centers held across Canada. Regarding the McIvor Case Decision, INAC doesn't know yet who will be affected. They are waiting for the Indian Act to be amended. No changes yet, if applicants apply now they will be denied.
AANDC will send out an update & new applications at that time.
*Reminder* the first time you apply for a SCIS you will need to produce your original Birth Certificate & two valid original ID's (one must have a picture), marriage certificates, and two passport photos. No temporary, altered or photocopied documents will be accepted.
