This study is about the future, not the past.
The Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study is an extensive new research study that has gone beyond the numbers to capture the values, experiences and aspirations of Aboriginal peoples living in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Ottawa.
Speaking directly with a representative group of 2,614 First Nations peoples, Métis and Inuit living in these major Canadian cities, as well as 2,501 non-Aboriginal Canadians, the Environics Institute, led by Michael Adams, has released the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study, which offers Canadians a new perspective of their Aboriginal neighbours. Guided by an Advisory Circle, Aboriginal people designed the research themes, methodology, and executed the main survey.
City findings are now available, beginning with the Regina City Report, then the Toronto City Report, Winnipeg City Report, Edmonton City Report, Thunder Bay City Report, Vancouver City Report, Saskatoon City Report, Halifax City Report, Montreal City Report, and Calgary City Report which takes a look at the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study results specifically through a community based lens on each of those cities. Also available for download is the Regina presentation, the Toronto presentation, Winnipeg presentation, Edmonton presentation, Thunder Bay presentation, and Vancouver presentation of the results.
