In collaboration with Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), we are pleased to distribute the following communications material, which highlights the legislative changes to the Indian Act under S-3 (An Act to Amend in Indian Act in response to the Superior Court of Quebec decision in Descheneaux c. Canada [Procureur général]), and its impacts on First Nations.


ISC has committed to undertaking outreach with First Nation communities and with the general public on S-3 as more individuals are now eligible for registration. The Department has created material to outline the registration process for S-3 applicants and includes some other information resources. This material can be found linked below. Please disseminate these documents among your networks, post them in your offices for general awareness, and share them online.
