Aboriginal Labour Stats


I have a student who’s trying to compare employment / unemployment among aboriginals living on-reserve or off-reserve.

Are numbers for on-reserve employment available anywhere?


I have received the following response from subject matter:

“Please find below table at the Canada and province and territory level of geography. You can select whether you would like the data narrowed down by on-reserve or off-reserve population and by which aboriginal identity. Any other level of geography would need to be ordered on a custom basis at the nearest regional office. 
Secondary (High) School Diploma or Equivalent (14), Labour Force Status (8), Aboriginal Identity (8), Area of Residence: On Reserve (3), Registered or Treaty Indian Status (3), Age Groups (13B) and Sex (3) for the Population Aged 15 Years and Over, in Private Households of Canada, Provinces and Territories, 2011 National Household Survey
