Reports Highlight Unique Challenges, Experiences and Perspectives of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada

Two reports about Aboriginal peoples in Canada recently came across my desk that I'd like to recommend to our network:

Aboriginal Communities in Profile: Ontario

This is a report from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) that provides in-depth analysis of the demographic trends of Aboriginal communities in Ontario. For highlights, check out OTF's press release; and click here for the full report.

Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study

Published by Environics Institute and also supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, this study is a departure from a reporting of the "facts" and instead focuses on the "values, experiences, identities and aspirations of urban Aboriginal peoples." Read the report and visit the project website if you want to learn more about and understand the experiences and perspectives of Aboriginal peoples living in urban centres.

Looking for more resources? Access facilitator presentations, handouts and web links by checking out Sustainability Network's First Nations Awareness Workshop held this past January.
