Enrolment

Please note: application for TFN Membership is a separate process from applying for Status registration. Becoming a TFN Member does not automatically mean you are registered as a Status Indian.

Applications for enrolment as a Tsawwassen Member are reviewed by the Tsawwassen Enrolment Committee, which is made up of 5 Tsawwassen Members. If you wish to apply for enrolment please review the Procedures for Eligibility and Enrolment of Members to see the enrolment criteria and documents required with your application.

Status Registration

The Enrolment Registrar also acts as TFN’s Indian Registry Administrator (IRA), the liaison to the Indian Registrar of the Department of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). TFN’s IRA is available to assist Members with applications for Status registration, issuing CIS (Status) cards, and registering events (including births, marriages, divorces, legal name changes, and deaths) with INAC.
