Abstract: The differences in socio-economic conditions between Registered Indians in total, Registered Indians living on reserve and the total Canadian population are apparent. Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) supports First Nations in developing healthy, sustainable communities and in achieving their economic and social aspirations. It provides funding for province-like services (such as education, income assistance and social development services) to persons ordinarily resident on reserve, with the goal of ensuring access to services comparable to those available to other Canadian residents. Based primarily on data from the 1996 and 2001 Censuses, this pamphlet provides a snapshot of the socio-economic conditions for these three population groups.
