Do I qualify?
To get a gas card, you need to be a:
- First Nations individual who has a Certificate of Indian Status card (status card) issued by Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (previously Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada), or
- First Nations band.
Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada issues a Temporary Confirmation of Registration Document to newly registered individuals. This document may be used as proof of your registration, until you receive a status card.
* Gas cards are renewed every five years.
