Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) offices are closed due to COVID-19.
Please be aware that processing times for Indian status and secure status cards are delayed.
If your status card expires during the pandemic, you can still use it until ISC offices reopen.
Service providers are advised to accept status cards or Temporary Confirmation of Registration Documents (TCRDs) past the renewal date, if accompanied by a second piece of identification.
ISC is reminding businesses and service providers that Indian status does not expire. Registration numbers required to confirm programs and services eligibility remain the same after the renewal date.
