Registration & Application Guidelines

Application Requirements for MNA Membership

To apply for a membership with the MNA you must meet the requirements of the definition of Métis. The  following documents are also required:

  1. A completed Genealogy family tree dating back to the mid 1800’s;
  2. Either a long form birth certificate which includes your parent’s names, OR a baptismal certificate along with a wallet sized birth certificate;
  3. Picture ID (e.g. driver’s license, passport, firearm license); and
  4. Proof you are a current resident of Alberta for 90 consecutive days.

**It is your responsibility to keep your contact information current.**

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 Métis and is eligible for Aboriginal rights under section 35 of the Constitution Act (1982).
