Footnote 2

Residence on or off reserve refers to whether the person's usual place of residence is in a census subdivision (CSD) that is defined as 'on reserve' or 'off reserve.'

Users should be aware that the estimates associated with this variable are more affected than most by the incomplete enumeration of certain Indian reserves and Indian settlements in the Census of Population.

For more information on Aboriginal variables, including information on their classifications, the questions from which they are derived, data quality and their comparability with other sources of data, refer to the Aboriginal Peoples Reference Guide, Census of Population, 2016 and the Aboriginal Peoples Technical Report, Census of Population, 2016.

Footnote 3

The category 'Total - Single and multiple responses of language spoken at home' indicates the number of respondents who reported each language, either as their only response, or in combination with another language. Total responses represent the sum of single and multiple responses of the language spoken at home received in the census.

Return to footnote 3 referrer

Footnote 4

A single response to the language spoken at home occurs when a respondent provides one language only.

Return to footnote 4 referrer

Footnote 5

A multiple response to the language spoken at home occurs when a respondent provides two or more languages.

Return to footnote 5 referrer

Footnote 6

This is a total population count. The sum of the languages in this table is greater than the total population count because a person may report more than one language in the census.
