The Minister of the Interior was a cabinet post responsible for federal land management, Indian affairs and natural resources extraction. Created in 1873 to replace the Secretary of State for the Provinces, it was itself replaced by two ministries in 1936: the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and the Minister of Mines and Technical Surveys (now the Minister of Natural Resources).
This collection consists of supplementary parish returns of Métis family heads from different parishes in Manitoba. These include affidavits by Donald Codd, Agent of Dominion Lands.
