Lands and Membership Services
The Lands program covers land holdings, surveys, mapping, legal lot descriptions, document preparation, registering interests, on-line access to Indian Lands Registry System and record keeping. Lease payments, rent reviews and insurance notices are tracked for leases.
The Indian Registry System is controlled and maintained by Aboriginal Affairs. We provide information and proper documents in order for them to make changes, such as births, marriages and deaths. We provide a variety of application forms, such as Certificate of Indian Status card, Secure Certificate of Status and gas cards.
While addressing in-house policies of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, these programs are still subject to follow Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) policies, procedures, directives and administrative e-manuals in all respects.

Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Ngii Waabmaa "I Saw"
Restoring our traditional knowledge as Anishinaabe people was identified in the 2015 Community Visioning. This project, NGII WAABMAA "I Saw" aims to help us deepen and strengthen our relationship to the land and waters in our territory by helping encouraging us to be on the land and to report what we see for the benefit of all.
It is helpful to map our sightings in order to create a database of who and what we share our territory with, to help determine and predict trends, and to mitigate potential problems in the future. Therefore any and all siting's reported are important. Sightings can include wildlife, edible plants and medicines.
