Public Policy

Indigenous Policy Research

The report summarizing the discussion during the policy research workshop on Indigenous issues that the Network held last May in Ottawa is now available. This workshop culminated a two-year partnership with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada to support policy relevant research using data from the 2012 cycle of the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS). The workshop gathered approximately 65 invitees to discuss the results of these research projects focusing on Indigenous education, employment, and health, as well as the state of the data landscape relative to Indigenous Peoples in Canada. “Ethics,” “respect,” “collaboration,” “synergy,” and “strength” capture the main message from the workshop. Happy reading!

The story of Canada's ethnocultural diversity in numbers

On April 25, Statistics Canada will host the first of a four-part speaker series organized to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Peter S. Li, Professor Emeritus at the University of Saskatchewan, will address the ‘construction of diversity’ in Canada, based not only on demographic realities but also on normative values at different points in time. His presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Jack Jedwab, Ümit Kiziltan, Nora Spinks, Yoko Yoshida and Jean-Pierre Corbeil. The Chief Statistician of Canada, Anil Arora, will chair the event. Register early, as space is limited.
