Métis and non-status Indians in rural and small city Canada 1996-2001 / Erik Anderson.: R5-679/2006E-PDF

"Métis and Non-Status Indian populations in Canada have increased at a rate that far exceeds that of the non-Aboriginal population. This is especially true in small cities between 1996 and 2001, as well as in rural areas, where the non-Aboriginal population experienced a decline. Government policies in recent years have emphasized the needs of a growing urban Aboriginal population. This emphasis has been partly in reaction to the bulk of federal Aboriginal spending targeted to First Nation reserves. The needs of Métis and Non-Status Indians in rural areas and small cities are also of concern, however, given their growing population in these areas and the socio-economic gaps with the non-Aboriginal population. These gaps are as great in rural and small cities as in large cities. This paper is intended to address a shortfall in the current knowledge of Métis and Non-Status Indian population increase and socio-economic status in rural and small city Canada"--Introduction, p. 2.
