First Nations Nurses in Saskatchewan


I have a researcher who is trying to find information about the number of Aboriginal/First Nations nurses in Canada, especially Saskatchewan.

We’ve been able to find figures for numbers of nurses overall at CIHI, but their stats don’t include ethnicity. LFS, APS and NHS tables address employment and educational attainment, but the data isn’t detailed enough. Is there another source of information or another approach one might take, short of ordering a custom tabulation?


You can try contacting the Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada: <http://www.anac.on.ca/>. However, in regards to StatsCan, it would have to be a custom tab.
