Footnote(s)

Footnote 1

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 additional information, please refer to the Aboriginal Peoples Reference Guide, Census of Population, 2016.

Footnote 2

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

Total Aboriginal ancestry responses are the sum of persons who gave a single Aboriginal ancestry response, a multiple Aboriginal ancestry response and a non- Aboriginal ancestry response.

The sum of all ancestry responses is greater than the total population estimate due to the reporting of multiple ancestries.

Return to footnote 3 referrer

Footnote 4

A single Aboriginal ancestry response occurs when a person provides one Aboriginal ancestry only, with or without a non-Aboriginal ancestry response. For example, responses of 'Cree' or 'Cree and English' would both be counted as single Aboriginal responses.

Return to footnote 4 referrer

Footnote 5

A multiple Aboriginal ancestry response occurs when a person provides more than one Aboriginal ancestry, with or without a non-Aboriginal ancestry response. For example, responses of 'Cree and Abenaki' or 'Cree, Abenaki and French' would both be counted as multiple Aboriginal responses.

Return to footnote 5 referrer

Footnote 6

A non-Aboriginal ancestry response occurs when a person provides non-Aboriginal ancestry responses only. For example, responses of 'English,' 'French,' or 'English and French' would all be counted as non-Aboriginal ancestry responses.

Return to footnote 6 referrer

Footnote 7

This is a total population estimate. The sum of the ancestries in this table is greater than the total population estimate because a person may report more than one ancestry in the census.

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.

For additional information on the collection and dissemination of ethnic origin data, refer to the Ethnic Origin Reference Guide, Census of Population, 2016.

Footnote 8

In the Census of Population, some respondents may choose to provide very specific Aboriginal ancestries, while other respondents may choose to give more general responses. This means that two respondents with the same ancestry could have different response patterns and thus could be counted as having different Aboriginal ancestries. For example, one respondent may report 'First Nations' ethnic origin while another respondent, with a similar ancestral background, may report 'Ojibway' or 'Anishinaabe' ancestry; one respondent may report 'North American Indian' while another, similar respondent, may report 'Coast Salish' or 'Cowichan.' As a result, Aboriginal ancestry data are fluid, and counts for specific origins may seem different than initially expected. Users who wish to obtain broader response counts may wish to combine data for one or more ancestries together.
