How can I join MNGV ?
There is no longer a Direct application to MNGV as we do NOT have a genealogist with MNGV anymore. Since February 2020 a pplicants are directed to MNBC for Geneology Verification.
The registry staff at Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) has over 100 years of combined genealogical and historical research, expertise, and skills which is available to you, at no charge, as part of their application process! Once you have achieved Citizenship with MNBC, they will send you a letter outlining the Community Acceptance process. That letter will need to be signed by a Designate for MNGV.
Present your Community Acceptance letter to the MNGV office and you will be given one-page Membership Registration Form, and we will immediately assign you an MNGV community number and create the MNGV card. (40 $ card fee)
We will then sign the letter as the Designate for MNGV and send it back to the Registrar at MNBC and they will then send you your MNBC Citizenship Card. By following these steps you will have joined both your Provincial Metis and your local, MNBC and MNGV !
