Indigenous Population Profile: High-quality social, economic and demographic statistics for various geographic areas
June marks National Indigenous History Month in Canada, and today, June 21, 2023, is National Indigenous Peoples Day. This day is an annual reminder for people across Canada to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations people, Métis and Inuit.
The Indigenous Population Profile is now available and presents information from the 2021 Census of Population, focusing on the Indigenous identity population in various geographic areas. These areas include Canada, the provinces and territories, census metropolitan areas, census agglomerations, census divisions, census subdivisions, Métis settlements, Inuit regions, and First Nations and Tribal Council areas. Data are available for the Indigenous identity population by age group and gender for select socio-demographic characteristics, such as language, housing, education, labour and income.
The success of the 2021 Census would not have been possible without the involvement of Indigenous people. Thanks to their participation, high-quality data are available for Indigenous communities across the country. Statistics Canada would like to thank First Nations people, Métis and Inuit for responding to the 2021 Census of Population.
