Citizenship

Dear Métis Applicant:

 

In order for us to process your citizenship application and issue a Métis citizenship ID card, here is what we need:

 

1) Applicant must first apply to MNBC Central Registry and once MNBC Central Registry has verified & validated the genealogy they will require that you are accepted by a local community as the last step in acceptance as a Registered Métis Citizen. At that time, we will have your information and will issue a CMA membership card.

 

2) If you already have your MNBC citizenship card and have moved to Chilliwack, then you'll need to complete our Citizenship Application form, which must be filled-out completely (incomplete applications will not be processed),

 

3) Fees have been eliminated

4) Two pieces of identification (which must be shown when the citizen Card is picked up.)

 

Please forward completed forms to                                        Chilliwack Métis Association                                              P.O. Box 2037                                                                  Chilliwack, B.C.                                                                      V2R 1A5

"We must cherish our inheritance.
We must preserve our nationality for the youth of our future.
The story should be written down to pass on."

My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back.
