The CHN has developed a draft Haida Citizenship Act, following a resolution passed at the 2013 House of Assembly. The first draft of the Act was presented at the Spring Session in May 2015. The CHN is now seeking your input on the draft Act. Haida citizens can request a copy of the Act by getting in touch with the Citizenship Clerk.

Over the upcoming months, the Citizenship Coordinator will be meeting with each clan to discuss the draft Act and answer questions you may have. Citizens in Vancouver and Prince Rupert can also ask questions and provide input at upcoming forums in your regions. Sign up to the Haida Nation contact database to receive updates on meeting dates and progress!

You can also contact citizenship staff directly:
