National Association of Friendship Centres Supports the Launch of the Aboriginal Peopleís Survey
Condensed by Native Village
Ontario: Statistics Canada is currently collecting data for their 2012 Aboriginal Peopleís Survey.
The Aboriginal Peopleís Survey (APS) is a national survey that collects information from Canada's Metis and Inuit, as well as First Nationís people living off reserve. Its focus is on education, employment, health, language, income, housing and mobility. The survey data from 2006 has been tremendously valuable in understanding the needs of aboriginal communities.
The 2012 APS data collection runs from February - June, 2012. This information is important to support and improve the lives and well-being of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) encourages all to participate in the data collection.
