OK, I'm registered. How do I apply for my Status Card?
To apply for your Status Card, you'll need:
- Your completed application form.
- Two passport-style photographs with both the photographer's and your guarantors signature on the back OR you can now take your own photos when you apply for a secure status card and submit it with your guarantor's name, email and signature right from your smart phone using the SCIS photo app. **this second option is free so you wont have to pay for the photos**
- One piece of Valid ID. If you apply by mail, photocopy the front and back of your ID and have your guarantor sign and date the photocopies.
- Someone to fill out the Guarantor declaration form. This can be anyone over 18 who is registered under the Indian Act or employed in an eligible occupation, and has known you for at least two years.
Send by mail to:
National SCIS Processing Unit
Indigenous Services Canada
10 rue Wellington
Gatineau QC K1A 0H4
You have lots of options for places to get your photos done: Wal-Mart, Superstore, London Drugs, and Shopper's Drug Mart all have passport photo services.
You can also apply online through OneFeather.
