Membership Search Service

The Federation of Newfoundland Indians is pleased to offer a membership search service to applicants of the Qalipu enrolment process through our End of Enrolment Support Team.

If you were a documented band member in one of Newfoundland’s Mi’kmaq bands prior to the signing of the Agreement in Principle (AIP) on June 23, 2008, then your name should be on the master list of band members that was compiled at that time.  The Mi’kmaq bands of Newfoundland that were recognized for inclusion at the time of the AIP included the Federation of Newfoundland Indians (FNI), Ktaqamkuk Mi’kmaq Alliance, Benoit First Nation and Sip’kop Mi’kmaq Band.

Why does this matter?

Applicants to the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation could satisfy the enrolment criteria of Self Identification, or obtain 9 points toward the 13 point criteria of Group Acceptance, through their documented membership in one of Newfoundland’s Mi’kmaq bands prior to the signing of the AIP.

Were you a member yet did not meet self-id or did not receive 9 points for your membership?

To request a search for your name on the master list to verify your membership in a recognized Mi’kmaq band prior to the signing of the AIP, please contact a member of our End of Enrolment Support Team at the contact information below.  Please note, you will be asked to complete a Request to Search Membership form to process your search request, and you will be verbally notified of the result.
