START A PETITION

Jan 12, 2010

Please take a moment to sign this petition, it is the first time in history that these people will have status recognition by the Canadian Government:

Petition Site - Mi'kmaq First Nations Band


Background (Preamble):

"On June 23, 2008 The Honorable Chuck Strahl and President of the FNI Brendan Sheppard signed the Agreement-in-Principle for status recognition for eligible Mi'kmaq under the Indian Act. As of November 30, 2009, close to 25,000 applications have been received and approximately 11,000 have been approved by the Enrolment Committee, chaired by Mr. Tom Rideout."

Many of these applicants were led to believe that by submitting their applications before the first deadline, they would be considered for membership. This was not the case. Today there is roughly 14,000 people who have not had their applications processed and therefore will not be eligible for Band membership for several more years.

Note: You do not have to be an applicant of the Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nation Band to sign the following petition. We encourage any supporters to sign.


One of the 14,000
