Indian Status Card
Indigenous Services Canada Update
Due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 world pandemic, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) is taking strong precautions to ensure the health and safety of all employees and clients. Therefore, the office is currently closed, and we are not accepting clients for in-person services and are operating at a reduced capacity.
To find the instruction on how to apply for an Indian Status Card, please visit the Indigenous Services Canada website (www.isc.gc.ca) or click this link: https://www.sac-isc.gc.ca/eng/1462808207464/1572460627149
Please be advised, due to the current circumstances, the processing for the Secure Certificate of Indian Status may be delayed. This includes the return of any original documents sent with the application.
Please remember, the Blood Tribe Membership Department cannot track any Indian Status Card applications that are mailed to ISC. They are not responsible for processing the application, so any follow-up or questions will need to be directed to ISC, not Blood Tribe Membership.
Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, ISC has extended the validity date of Indian Status Cards until further notice.
- Service providers should accept Indian Status Cards or Temporary Confirmation or Registration Documents (TCRDs), with identification, even if the renewal or expiry date has passed.
- Indian Status does not expire. Your registration number confirms your status and can be used to access some services and programs.
The phone number to call Ottawa about Indian Status Cards is 1-800-567-9604.
