Registration Division (formerly Enumeration)

thumbnail of Membership Cards

In December 2016, the Northwest Territory Métis Nation (NWTMN) Leadership directed Administration to prepare for a final round of registration to identify eligible Métis Citizens who can become beneficiaries of the NWTMN Land Claim. The goal is to have a list of Métis Citizens who possess a birthright that enables them to participate and benefit in all aspects of the NWTMN Land Claim.

All applicants are required to submit an Enrolment Application Form for consideration.

Printed applications can be obtained at your nearest Métis Council office. Individuals requiring assistance in completing the application can contact your nearest Northwest Territory Métis Nation Community Fieldworker.

Completed applications can be delivered to the Northwest Territory Métis Nation for review by any method noted on the Application Form. 

All application documents are available in the Forms section below.


Please review the below Enrolment Application Form to register for enumeration:

Part 1 – Membership Application Form (Fillable PDF) or use our ONLINE form
Part 2 – GNWT Vital Stats Form
Part 3 – RC Diocese Personal Release Form
Part 4 – Membership Card Application Form

How-To: Provide your own photo and signature
