New MNA Membership Cards
The Métis Nation of Alberta is issuing new membership cards to replace the existing plastic laminated ‘red and white’ cards. New membership cards will NOT be automatically issued to holders of the current ‘red and white’ card. To receive a new card, members must contact the regional or provincial registry offices to ensure that all necessary documentation is on file to prove the card holder meets the criteria for membership.
The new membership cards contain security features that effectively remove the possibility of illegal duplication. Bar codes on the cards link to a state of the art information database containing personal and genealogical information that guarantee the holder of the card is Metis and is eligible for Aboriginal rights under section 35 of the Constitution Act (1982).
If you have any questions about membership, contact our head office or your nearest regional MNA office. Click here for additional contact information.
