Date: 2000

Abstract: The differences in socio-economic conditions between Registered Indians, Registered Indians living on-reserve and the total Canadian population are apparent both within First Nation communities and throughout the larger population of Canada. However, as demonstrated by the data, there continues to be improvement towards narrowing the gap between these groups. Based mainly on data from the 1991 and 1996 Census, this pamphlet outlines improvements and provides a snapshot of the socio-economic conditions for these groups.
