Secure Certificate of Indian Status

Whether you are Cree Nation of Chisasibi member or registered to a different band, obtaining a new card or updated status card if available, is easy. 

Due to the actual COVID-19 pandemic, it is impossible to go in-person to obtain a Secure Certificate of Indian Status (SCIS).

By Email or Mail:

  • Applications are available online or at the office of the Membership Clerk.
  • For mails-in, you must include a Guarantor Declaration with the original signature of your guarantor.
  • The guarantor must sign and date copies of the front and back of your supporting identity documents.
  • If you are applying for registration and for the Security Certificate of Indian Status, the guarantor must also sign and date the back of one of your photos.

Secure Certificate of Indian Status Photo Application

You can now take your own photo when applying for a Secure Certificate of Indian Status (SCIS), or secure status card, and submit it straight from your smart phone free of charge.

The SCIS Photo App eliminates the cost of photos and offers a convenient way to provide the photo required to apply for the secure status card.​
