For this paper, the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) was used to provide health data for the total population of Canada in order to make comparisons with the Métis population.

The Canadian Community Health Survey is a cross-sectional survey that collects information related to health status, health care utilization and health determinants for the population of Canada aged 12 or over in the provinces and territories. Since 2007, data have been collected annually. Prior to 2007, data collection occurred every two years. Data are available for 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007. This report is based on data collected between January and December 2005 on the total population of Canada aged 15 years and over.
