Assessment Tool for Evaluating Aboriginal Citizen Registry Systems

DOWNLOAD | Citizen registries are essential for any government. They provide the basis for elections, help determine who is eligible for program benefits, identify those with certain Aboriginal rights, and provide an important instrument in the conduct of intergovernmental relationships. That said, the governance of registry systems turns out to be complicated. There needs to be a policy framework to guide registry staff, one that is consistent with existing jurisprudence; security and privacy concerns need to be addressed; the role of political leaders and registry staff need to be clear; and there should be some mechanism in place for appeals. This tool was developed for Métis organizations but could be adapted for use by any Aboriginal organization.
