You are cordially invited to attend the presentation on the Toronto results of the Urban Aboriginal Peoples’ Study by Ginger Gosnell-Myers of the Environics Institute.

In 2009, members of Toronto’s Aboriginal community took part in a national survey of urban Aboriginal Peoples where hundreds of people were interviewed about life in the city, their values, community relations, aspirations, and identity.

Ginger will be highlighting the findings of the study which will include the methodology of the project and findings from both the national, and local Toronto perspective.

What does it mean to be First Nations or Métis and living in Toronto? What are the connections people have to their communities? How does Toronto rank for opportunities, happiness, culture, politics, and identity in comparison to other major Canadian cities urban Aboriginal communities? These results will be looked at, and much more.

For more information, please contact Ginger at

Food and Refreshments will be served.
