The deadline for people planning to appeal the decision on their membership into the Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nation has been extended.
The deadline has been pushed back from March 17 to the 31.
Meanwhile, a rally in support of Qalipu members is taking place next Friday.
Supporters will gather at The Landing at Memorial University and march along Prince Phillip Drive to Confederation Building.
Many people living outside recognized Qalipu communities were rejected despite their family connections.
