Preparing for Your Session
It is important for you to bring your photo ID with you to your session, to support your claim application. If you have a Claim Form or personal narrative that you have already started, please bring it with you so we can build on the work you have already done.
- Photo ID
- Claim Form and personal narrative (if you’ve started it)
- Support person or support items
Acceptable forms of valid government-issued identification include:
- Social insurance card
- Driver’s license card
- Provincial/territory photo card

Please note that health cards are NOT acceptable forms of ID for privacy reasons. Membership cards issued by an organization, or cards issued by a city, municipality or region are also not acceptable forms of ID, as they are not issued by a state, provincial, territorial or federal government.

I am a Métis woman from the Red River in Manitoba. I am fortunate to live on my Métis homelands within Treaty 1 Territory. I love to fish, hunt, and visit with family.
I am of mixed European settler and Inuit ancestry, and live and work in Winnipeg. I love spending time outside, even in winter. My kids are 8 and 10 years old, and they love spending time inside on screens playing video games or talking to friends. Luckily I can still talk them into joining me on a hike, skate or swim from time to time.
With a deep passion and involvement in the diversity, equity and inclusion space, I support two organizations dedicated to the professional advancement of the Black community outside of work. I love to work out, then spend the rest of my time eating and lounging in bed. My colleagues would describe me as passionate, dedicated and a team player.
Being a parent and a partner are my toughest jobs but the ones that make everything else matter. It is important to me to do work that makes them proud. I believe that time off isn't a true vacation unless it is taken near a lake, an ocean or a mountain.

Hello! I am Blackfoot from the Piikani First Nation. I am a mom and grandmomma to a beautiful grand daughter. I smudge to give thanks to the Creator and ask for guidance and strength to have a good life.
I love walking in nature, spending time with family and knitting. I live with my husband and two teenage children, who make me laugh every day.
I am a proud Anishinabe father to four fantastic children and we miss being able to travel around the world. My colleagues would describe me as determined, loyal, a strong supporter of our endeavours and having a good sense of humour.
When I’m not at work, I’m hanging out with my family or enjoying the outdoors with friends. My hobbies include deep wood camping, hiking, snowboarding and cross-country skiing. My colleagues describe me as focused, positive and organized.
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family. I have a rescue dog called ‘Blue’ and we take her on regular hikes. I appreciate the opportunity to take photographs wherever I go. My colleagues would describe me as friendly, optimistic and encouraging.
