Bimose administers membership for the following First Nations: Ochiichagwe’Babigo’Ining Ojibway NationWabauskang First Nation and Affiliated Members of Bimose Tribal Council.  

 

UPDATED INFORMATION:

Unfortunately, Bimose is currently only providing IRA(Indian Registrar Administrator) or Membership Clerk duties to the First Nations we manage: Ochiichagwe’Babigo’Ining Ojibway Nation and Wabauskang First Nation. Card stock is being prioritized for the two First Nations.

We are still able to assist in processing births, bill C-3 application, transfer, adoptions, and name change requests for any First Nation.

Alternative options to obtain your Certificate of Indian Status is to apply for the Secure CIS by mail or contact your First Nations IRA/Membership Clerk. Other First Nation IRA/s/Membership Clerks may be able to assist at their own discretion.
