Summary and Background

Garden River First Nation (GRFN) is currently accepting proposals to complete an update of our Citizenship Registry Regulations (aka Membership Code) of the GRFN #14. The existing Citizenship Registry Regulations was approved by referendum on June 15, 1987 and revisions are required.

Garden River First Nation is under the affiliation of the Anishinabek Nation (Union of Ontario Indians) and Mamaweswen (North Shore Tribal Council) and was established under the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850. GRFN has a registered membership comprised of 2244 registered band members and 757 affiliated registered status with a total citizenship of 3001.

Native registration for citizens occurs through an application process initiated with either the citizen or through the assistance of The Membership Clerk and sent to Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada for processing. Once registered, the citizen’s information is sent to The Indian Registry Administrator’s Office (aka Membership Office). As per the existing Citizenship Registry Regulations, the citizen is either classified as an affiliated registered status or as a registered band member.

The Membership Committee was established in 1988 after the inception of the Citizenship Registry Regulations . The 2019-2020 Membership Committee comprises of Peter Jones (Chair), Deb Shawanda-Belleau and Cindy Jones. Councillors Brandi Nolan, Lesley Zack-Caraballo and Karen Bell attend the meetings as portfolio holders. Terri Tice is the Membership Clerk and provides administrative and technical support. The GRFN Chief and Council is the governing body and represent the GRFN membership.

Proposals should be submitted by mail or electronically to the attention of:
