MNBC Citezenship Cards
MNBC is the only Métis organization BC to be officially recognized by the provincial and federal governments as the official political representative of Métis people in the province.
The Court identified three broad factors in Métis identification that must all be met for gaining Métis Citizenship:
1) Self identification
2) Ancestral connection to the historic Métis community
3) Contemporary Métis community acceptance

Métis Nation BC is now issuing Harvester Cards. MNBC citizens may apply for cards by printing a copy of the forms from this website or by requesting forms from the MNBC Harvester Registry Clerk, completing the application as directed and then sending them to MNBC.
At this time, the MNBC Harvester Card may only be used to replace the Federal Migratory Bird license. Métis must continue to purchase all other government licenses or face charges from enforcement officers.
