RE: SECURE OF INDIAN CERTIFICATE STATUS CARDS (SCIS)
Important information regarding status cards past renewal date.
Since April 2020, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) has extended the validity date of status cards and Temporary Confirmation of Registration Documents due to Covid – 19 pandemic. This extension will end May 1, 2022.
Registered persons with a status card past the renewal date should renew now. Applicants should submit a complete application with all required documents . complete applications will be processed in 8 to 12 weeks.
A person’s registration under the Indian Act does not expire . The 10-digit registration number can be used to access certain services. However, registered persons with a status card past the renewal date may find it difficult to access some services and programs.
Should you require assistance with the applications please feel free to contact me.
