Adult-arctic supplement:

For the 2001 Aboriginal Peoples Survey, Statistics Canada, the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, Nunavut Tunngavik, Makivik Incorporated, the Labrador Inuit Association, Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and Laval University developed jointly a supplement to the APS core survey. This supplement for those aged 15 and older included a number of questions from the Survey of Living Conditions in the Arctic (SLCA), carried out in a number of circumpolar countries. The supplement contained the following sections: household and harvesting activities, personal wellness and community wellness. Questions from the supplement were asked of those living in the four Inuit regions across the north of Canada.
