What does this mean? What if I was alive and eligible as of September 13, 2018 but I have not yet received my status from the Federal Government or I have not even applied yet? The above motion means that you have until December 31st, 2019 to APPLY for your status to still be considered for a per capita distribution should you receive status. How will you demonstrate that you have applied? At the September 9th, 2019 Council Meeting , Council has agreed upon a few different ways:

– A confirmation letter dated on or before December 31st, 2019 from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada showing you have applied and have been given a 10 digit file number.

– Receipt of shipping by courier services (FED EX/Purolator/UPS etc.) showing you mailed your application to Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada on or before December 31st, 2019

– A registered Mail Slip showing you mailed your application to Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada on or before December 31st, 2019

– A Tracking # (Canada Post) showing you mailed your application to Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada on or before December 31st, 2019
