Important Notice on INAC Status Cards


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) has announced that a letter is being distributed to the community detailing problems/issues regarding the new Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) Status Cards.

Border Crossing Portfolio Chiefs Mike Bush and Martin Leborgne met with INAC officials this week to discuss the MCK’s concerns. There have been an inordinate number of technical problems surrounding application procedures. For various reasons, some people will be receiving a new Card relatively soon, while others will not be so fortunate.

“The United States Department of Homeland Security and INAC have been strongly advised that we expect that any deadline for border crossing will be delayed until the technical difficulties are fixed,” says Chief Bush in the letter. “We have demanded that a statement to this effect be issued by one or both agencies to reassure our people about their concerns.”

PLEASE keep in mind that this is an INAC project. MCK staff is only there to assist you (for example, to suggest where to have photos taken, or to help distribute correct information to community members whenever possible).

The letter is being distributed through the local post office. It will also be available at the MCK main Offices an on-line at
