1 in 5 Manitobans will be aboriginal by 2036


The indigenous population in Canada is growing and projected to swell to as many as 2.6 million people by 2036, a new report by Statistics Canada says.

The agency projects one in five people in Manitoba and Saskatchewan will be aboriginal by 2036 — welcome news to Diane Redsky, executive director of Winnipeg's Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre. The organization works to support and rebuild aboriginal families in the city.

"I couldn't be more excited about the news. This is really going to change the landscape in the City of Winnipeg," Redsky said.
