Canada's aboriginal population, 1981-1991: Summary report by Donald W Kerr



Statistics Canada has been tracking Canada 's Aboriginal peoples for many years through the census ethnic origin question. However, it was not until the 1980's that Statistics Canada began to ask a specific question about Aboriginal identity. Statistics Canada collects information about Aboriginal identity in keeping with the terminology of Aboriginal peoples as employed in the Constitution Act, 1982 (. 5(2) in this Act, "Aboriginal peoples of Canada" includes the Indian, Inuit and Metis peoples of Canada). From 1981 to the present, Aboriginal ancestry has been defined by descent from both the mother and the father's side. In addition, since then, the ethnic origin question has allowed for the reporting of single and multiple responses. Prior to 1981, only single responses were permitted. The ethnic origin question in the 2006 Census long questionnaire (Form 2B) reads as follows: Description.

Canada ranks 38 comprising about . % of the world's total population, with over 37 million Canadians as of 2018. Despite having the 2nd largest landmass, the vast majority of the country is sparsely inhabited, with most of its population south of the 55th parallel north. Though Canada's population density is low, many regions in the south such as Southern Ontario, have population densities higher than several European countries.

Canada's Aboriginal population re-mains relatively younger (Table 2), although it is also beginning to age. About one-third of Indians, and two-fifths of Inuit are under 15 years of age (Health and Welfare 1991a:10)6 compared with 21 percent of all Canadians.

Hence while the Canadian baby boom generation is aging into retirement, the Aborig-inal baby boom generation is just beginning to age into the labour force (Frideres, 1993:143).

The committee's report-Excision of land from pastoral properties-was silent on many abuses surrounding the reservation system and rather than recommending joint ownership or management of cattle stations on Aboriginal land, recommended excisions from some pastoral lands for Aboriginal communities to enjoy limited economic or recreational opportunities. The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Land Rights Act 1981 (SA) was enacted following recommendations in the Report of Pitjantjatjara Land Rights Working Party of South Australia. It vested freehold title to all former reserve lands on Pitjantjatjara country, as well as some land purchased by the South Australian Government, in a corporate body comprising all the traditional owners.

Mainstream media, which are produced by and targeted largely to the majority population, have underestimated the significance of ethnic media as rivals in their markets. The visibility and recognition of ethnic media as equal actors in the media system is contingent upon the status of the audiences they serve. In addition, policymakers at all levels of government, in the . Canada, Australia, and a few European countries are recognizing that they need to connect to ethnic media if they want to get their message across to increasingly multi-ethnic constituencies. Slowly, but surely, local and national government officials are also becoming more responsive to ethnic media journalists.

? Population of Canada. The historical growth of Canada's population is complex and has been influenced in many different ways, such as indigenous populations, expansion of territory, and human migration. Being a new world country, Canada has been predisposed to be a very open society with regards to immigration, which has been the most important factor in its historical population growth. Canadians comprise about . % of the world's total population, with an estimated population of 36,443,632 by the Q4 of 2016. The 2016 Canadian census.

Nonetheless, from 1981 to 2001, the proportion of non-Aboriginal people with a university degree grew faster than the same proportion for Aboriginal people. This is important because education appears to reduce the employment gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians. In 2001, for instance, the employment rates of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal university graduates aged 20 to 64 were virtually identical.
