Hi William, This comment system leads to the team responsible for transparency and accountability work in the public service. We host datasets and records about many things, but we do not deal directly with services such as aboriginal status cards. I would recommend you contact INAC's public enquiries office. Their contact information can be found here: https://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/eng/1291132820288/1291132853616 I hope this helps. Thank you, Momin, the Open Government team.
