JBNQA Registry Update

The James Bay Northern Quebec Agreement registry is an important part of how funding is allocated to the communities each year. We have created this page to provide guidance on how you can update your information.

Why it's important

  • The amount of federal subsidy for local government operations is dependent on the accuracy of the list
  • Population statistics
  • Planning for services such as schools, daycare, family services, etc.

When to update your JBNQA Registry Information

  1. Declaration of Birth

New parents are to complete the “Application for Simplified Access to Birth-Related Government Programs and Services” with the Declaration of Birth. The hospital sends the application to the Ministère de la santé et des services sociaux (MSSS). The MSSS updates the JBNQA registry and attributes a beneficiary number to your new child.

  1. Declaration of Death

Send the declaration of death to your local
membership clerk.

  1. Are you moving?

Inform your membership clerk to change your community of residence
