Application for Band Membership

As of 1985, Peguis First Nation became a Section 10 Band. This means that there are two (2) lists that the Band must maintain:

1. Registry List
This is where an individual receives their registration number (example 269 00000 01). This entitles individuals to health, prescription drugs, dental, vision (all these determined by First Nations Inuit Health- FNIH, not your band) and post-secondary benefits (based on available funds).

2. Band Membership List
This entitles individuals the right to vote in all matters pertaining to their First Nation. It also entitles an individual to live on reserve and housing on reserve (based on availability)

If you have young children or have recently received a letter from the Registrar of Indian Affairs confirming your reinstatement to Indian Status with Peguis, please fill out a Membership Application. Once completed, please forward to the Peguis Band Office via mail or fax:

Current Mailing Address

Update of Membership List:
Our Membership List must be updated regularly. From time to time Peguis Chief and Council have distributed informational material and newsletters in an attempt to keep members informed on current issues.

It is then important that the addresses of all Members of Peguis on the Membership list be up to date and accurate. If you, or a member of your family, are a Peguis Band Member, living off-reserve, and you have not been receiving information from Peguis First Nation, please contact Membership Officer, Dawn Sinclair, at (204)645-2359 or toll free at 1-866-645-2359 to have your information updated.
