New stats offer snapshot of life in First Nation communities


New data released this week is providing an unprecedented look at life in First Nation communities, including indigenous languages, cultural beliefs, education and employment levels.

More than 21,000 children, youth and adults from 250 First Nation communities across Canada took part in a massive survey called the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey (FNREEES).

The survey was conducted by indigenous researchers with a non-profit organization called the First Nation Information Governance Centre (FNIGC), which released preliminary data this week at a conference in Ottawa.
