The Aboriginal People’s Survey from Statistics Canada is underway.

Every five years StatsCan seeks responses from First Nations people living off reserve, along with Métis and Inuit.

The 2017 will focus on Aboriginal people fit into the Canadian economy, such as skills, work experience, barriers to employment and language used in the workplace. It will also collect information regarding health, language, housing and mobility.

The survey runs until June 23, 2017. Statistics Canada hopes to reach about 48,000 Métis, Inuit and First Nations people.
