Introduction

The Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) is required by the Indian Act (Chapter I, Section 5 (1)) to record in the Indian Register the names of individuals who are registered under the Act. The Indian Registry System (IRS) is a database which records individuals’ names and a range of non-statutory data. The Registered Indian Population by Sex and Residence describes the IRS population as recorded at December 31, 2010. Descriptive statistics are developed from the IRS that include sex, residence, registry group, responsibility centre and region.






Differences from the 2009 Edition

The Peerless Trout First Nation (Band No. 478) in the Alberta Region was constituted via a division of the Bigstone Cree Nation (Band No. 458).






Data Organization

Data are organized in two broad sections. The first section provides summary statistics that include age and gender distribution, and residency comparisons for all regions and Canada.

The second section presents information for each registry group arranged by sex, residence, responsibility centre and region (see the definition of registry group below). For purposes of the Privacy Act, data in this section are collapsed into three columns by rolling residency fields 1 through 5 into one “On Reserve and On Crown Land” category. This minimizes the presence of small numbers thereby resulting in much less opportunity of identifying individuals.

Entire registry groups with total membership of less than 40 people are suppressed from the Detailed Tables section and indicated by a * in every cell. Furthermore, other techniques are in place such as suppression of individual cells smaller than 10 as well as suppression of adjacent cells to guard against residual disclosure. The counts of any suppressed cells, however, are included in aggregations to district, regional and national totals.

In total, data for 11 registry groups and general lists required suppression. In terms of registry groups, five in British Columbia were suppressed. As for general lists, there were two suppressions in Ontario, one in Manitoba, two in Saskatchewan and one in the Yukon.






Types of Residence

There are six types of residence, all of which are active fields used in the Indian Register. They represent individuals registered under the Indian Act, or who are descendants of individuals registered under the Indian Act, whose residency is captured by any one of the following:

  1. On Reserve Own Band
  2. On Reserve Other Band
  3. On Crown Land Own Band
  4. On Crown Land Other Band
  5. On Crown Land No Band
  6. Off Reserve

Unlike some other AANDC systems, the Indian Register does not distinguish between Indian Act reserves and lands affiliated to First Nations operating under Self-Government Agreements (SGAs). Technically, once a SGA is ratified, the lands are no longer considered Indian Reserves under the provisions of the Indian Act. Therefore, individuals in the “On Reserve and On Crown Land” category may reside on lands legally defined as Indian reserves, on Indian settlements usually represented by Crown Lands and on other lands affiliated to self-governing First Nations.

The Off Reserve category represents individuals affiliated to First Nations who may reside neither on reserve nor on Crown land according to the Indian Register.

Distinction between the words “Band”, “Registry Group” and “Reserve”

A band* refers to a body of Indians for whose collective use and benefit lands have been set apart or money is held by the Crown, or declared to be a band for purposes of the Indian Act.

A registry group is an administrative term used in the Indian Register. For details, please refer to point 1 under Source of Data.

A reserve* means a tract of land, the legal title to which is vested in Her Majesty, that has been set apart by Her Majesty for the use and benefit of a band.

At December 31, 2010, there were 616 Bands or 631 Registry Groups in Canada and 3,117 reserves, not all of which are inhabited.

Note to Users

The Indian Register is meant to record individual names in accordance with specific sub-sections of the Indian Act. The Indian Register does not include all persons who are entitled to be registered according to the Indian Act, only those who have applied to be registered and whose entitlement has been verified. Therefore, data from the IRS may not fully meet the requirements of some statistical activities (e.g. demographic projections, migration patterns).

There is a reporting lag between the occurrence of a given life event and its being reported and recorded for updating of the Indian Register. This means that events occurring prior to December 31, 2010 may not be reflected in the Indian Register as documented on that date. The following examples illustrate this concept:

  1. Infants entitled to be registered at birth may not be registered by the December 31st reporting date. Parents often do not report the birth until a later year. It is estimated that of all births reported in 2010, approximately 72 percent had actually occurred prior to 2010.

  2. Individuals can remain on the Indian Register for some time after they are deceased. A certificate of death or a confirmation of presumed death is normally required to remove a name from the Indian Register.

  3. Residency codes are typically updated when a life event is reported, although some bands update them more frequently. Residency remains a voluntary field in that the information is not mandatory to collect.





Source of Data

Individuals are considered Registered Indians if their names appear on the Indian Register. Names are added or deleted from the Indian Register based on legal sources of information such as provincial birth or death certificates.

The addition or removal of a name to or from any part of the Indian Register is approved by the Registrar as set out in the Indian Act.

The following concepts may affect interpretation and utility

  1. Data in the detailed tables are presented by registry group. A registry group is an administrative term applied to a group of Indian Register individuals who have membership in a particular Indian band, or, are descendants from members of that band. A band usually relates to only one registry group except in the following three cases: Six Nations of the Grand River band in the Ontario Region consists of 13 registry groups (pg.x); Stoney band in the Alberta Region consists of 3 registry groups (Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley); and the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations band in the Yukon Region consists of two registry groups (Aishihik and Champagne). The registry groups related to these bands are noted in the detailed tables.

  2. Affiliation of an individual with a particular registry group in the Indian Registration System is based on ancestry and may not equate to local band membership rules. Bands may choose to legally take control of their membership rules in accordance with Section 10 of the Indian Act. As at December 31, 2010, 231 bands out of 616, or 37.5%, have done so. Membership may be determined by self-government instruments operating outside of the Indian Act. As at the 2010 year-end, 27 First Nations are part of various Self Government Agreements (see link below for more information).

    Fact Sheet: Aboriginal Self-Government

    The statistics in this publication report the number of individuals who are registered with a registry group and make no statement as to whether or not they are band members.

  3. The "On Reserve and On Crown Land" category does not necessarily identify the location of registrants. As for the Off Reserve component, because the data are presented by band of affiliation, the individuals may not reside in that particular region, or even inside Canada for that matter.
