Indian Registry Program


To register a child on INAC's Indian Registry Program and your First Nation/Band membership, parent(s) must submit:

  1. A signed parental consent form for registration 
  2. The original child's birth certificate that states the names of the child's parent(s).

(Note to determine child’s correct entitlement under Indian Act, is very important that BOTH parents are on birth document IF they are both registered Indians.)

Documents should be sent to the Indian Registry Administrator for the First Nation that child is to be registered under. The child must be registered to be eligible for non-insured health benefits.
