Regional discussion report: Review of First Nations, Métis and Inuit questions on the census
Statistics Canada is preparing for the 2021 Census to ensure the collection of accurate and timely data for First Nations, Métis and Inuit populations in Canada.
From September 2017 to February 2018, Statistics Canada undertook a series of regional discussions across the country to talk to First Nations people, Métis and Inuit. These discussions focused on the questions asked in the census and in other Statistics Canada surveys to produce data about First Nations people, Métis and Inuit.
The last major review of these questions was done in 2007 prior to the 2011 National Household Survey.
The goal of this report is to summarize the feedback heard in the regional discussions. This feedback was used to prepare questions that will be tested in the 2019 Census Test.
The publication "Regional discussion report: Review of First Nations, Métis and Inuit questions on the census" is now available.
