Membership and Citizenship Rules

Indigenous communities have the inherent right to self-governance, a fundamental aspect of which is the right to determine who is a member or citizen. Whether in a Constitution or membership law pursuant to a self-government agreement, or in a custom membership code under the Indian Act, we work closely with our clients to help them develop and implement membership or citizenship rules that reflect the values and Indigenous laws of their community.
