Lands & Estates:

 

Please be advised that the lands and estates office will be fitted with plexi-glass in the near future in order to better receive clients.  We have been seeing clients outside the Band Office or the Board room due to Covid-19.

 

As the weather changes we must adapt in order to continue to offer our services in the best way that we can while keeping everyone safe.

 

As soon as my office is ready I will post the new safety measures that must be respected when you have an appointment with our office.  This will include a health questionnaire, temperature monitoring, hand washing and mandatory mask.

 

CLIENTS WILL BE SEEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!  No walk-ins will be accepted as the Band Office will remain closed to the public until further notice by Chief and Council.  Please use the contact information below to secure your appointment.

What is an Indian Registration Administrator

An Indian Registration Administrator (IRA) is a band employee on reserve who does work related to the administration of Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) programs.

IRAs are delegated specific authorities by the Indian Registrar. IRA’s work at the band level on behalf of ISC, IRAs are able to maintain the Indian Register and help band members apply for Indian status and status cards.

According to section 5 of the Indian Act, ISC is responsible for the Indian Register as well as band lists maintained at INAC.
