The Canadian Indian : a reference paper.: R5-234/1966E-PDF
"At the time of the first settlements in North America about four centuries ago, the Indian population of what is now Canada was, according to the best estimates of anthropologists, about 200,000. Shortly after the advant of the Europeans, the Indian population started to decline, and continued to dwindle until it became a common belief that the Indians were a dying race. The population had decreased by almost half early in this century. Then it began to increase, slowly at first then more rapidly so that now Indians are increasing faster than any other group in Canada. Today they have exceeded their original number, having a total population of some 210,000."--p. 1.
