Indian Registry

The Indian Registry Department is responsible for:

  • Assisting Tŝilhqot’in community members, and members of other Nations, in applying for a Secure Certificate of Indian Status card (SCIS), which will be mailed to them in approximately 8-16 weeks after applying
  • Registering the birth of a child; and
  • Band transfers

**Please note: we currently do not have paper-laminated Certificate of Indian Status (CIS) cards in stock.

You should visit TNG if your status card:

  • Is paper laminated;
  • Has expired;
  • Has a picture that no longer resembles you

*Reminder* the first time you apply for a SCIS you will need to provide one valid supporting ID (must have a picture), such as:

  • BCID
  • Driver’s Licence
  • Health Services Card
  • Passport

Also, any marriage/or name change certificates. No temporary, altered, or photocopied documents will be accepted.
