Membership and Status Cards are administered through the Lands & Natural Resources Department.

The Membership and Estates Clerk is responsible for registering individuals with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. The Clerk is also responsible for:

  • Assisting with Status Card applications
  • Managing birth registrations, deaths, marriages, and divorces
  • Maintaining band lists and population statistics
  • Encouraging and assisting members in the creation and registration of wills

An ongoing genealogical data project, funded by the Columbia Basin Trust, has been completed for four families to date.
