A Portrait of Aboriginal Children Living in Non-reserve Areas: Results from the 2001 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS)

The 2001 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS) is a post-censal survey of adults and children who reported Aboriginal ancestry, Aboriginal identity, Registered Indian status and/or Band membership on the 2001 Census. Approximately 76,000 adults and 41,000 children living in private households in the provinces and territories were selected to participate in the survey. The data were collected between September 2001 and January 2002.

This article presents the initial findings from the "children and youth" component of the 2001 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. Information on health, education and language are highlighted for Aboriginal children living in non-reserve areas. Some comparisons with all Canadian children are provided, as are comparisons between the Aboriginal children from the three main Aboriginal groups, i.e. North American Indian, Métis and Inuit.
