A-2010-02328 Study entitled "Impacts of the 1985 Amendments to the Indian Act" (Bill C-31), which I believe was submitted to the Parliamentary Committee in 1987 and tabled in the House of Commons on December 19, 1990;

Copy of the original Bill C-31, An Act to Amend the Indian Act as it was passed with all of its attachments;

Copy of any current contingency plans (completed between the years 2000-2008) which detail the current and/or potential population and/or self-governing First Nations and/or First Nations with modern treaty agreements and specifically with relation to the population numbers and access to federal programs and services of current non-status Indians in the future.

Copy of the policy, memo or directive which indicates the policy or reasons why INAC/DIAND maintains a list of who status Indians are in self-governing communities (former Indian Act band, like the Nisga'a or Council of Yukon Indian bands for example) despite the fact that the Aboriginal community no longer uses status to determine citizenship in their community or access to benefits under their self-government, land claim or modern treaty agreement. For clarity, I am not looking for any and all documents, but only the current policy or justification being used by the program(s) or department(s) for maintaining these lists. If there are no documents, a written explanation from the relevant head (like INAC self-government, claims and/or registrar for example) will suffice.
