Author(s): Strategic Research Directorate, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation
Abstract: Population, household and family projections are an important planning tool and one of the most frequently requested pieces of information by all levels of government and non-academic organizations. Demographic projections are needed to plan for future health care needs, education, family services, housing requirements, water and sewer services and a variety of other community services. Using recent trends and research regarding Registered Indians, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in collaboration with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has updated the projections for the Registered Indian population, households and families.
