Message from the RDG re: In-person services

While our office remains closed to the public, we are working to restore in-person services to our clients. I would like to thank the Registration and Annuities team and Corporate Services for their work in finding a temporary location to deliver in-person services.
As of today, in-person services for Registration and Secure Certificate of Indian Status are now available at a temporary location in Winnipeg by appointment. The details are below: · Hours:

  • 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday
  • Services are available by appointment only. To make an appointment, clients may call 204-983-5910

This is a temporary solution as we work toward a proposal for long-term service delivery. Information about in-person service delivery is being shared with Chiefs and Councils, Tribal Councils, Urban Indigenous Organizations and media.
Please feel free to share this information with your colleagues and partners in other organizations.
