Lands and Membership

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 and the Secure Certificate of Indian Status.

While addressing in-house policies of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, these programs are still subject to follow Crown-Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) policies, procedures, directives and administrative e-manuals in all respects.
