National Association of Friendship Centres Supports the launch of the Aboriginal People’s Survey 2012
For Immediate Release
March 16, 2012 Ottawa, ON – Statistics Canada is currently collecting data for their 2012 Aboriginal People’s Survey (February to June 2012). The Aboriginal People’s Survey (APS) is a national survey that collects information from First Nation’s people living off reserve, Metis and Inuit people living throughout Canada. Its focus is on education, employment, health, language, income, housing and mobility. The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) encourages you to participate in the APS data collection if you are contacted to do so. Your participation will result in more complete information. Quality information is important to support the efforts of Aboriginal peoples, communities and other organizations to make improvements in the well-being of Aboriginal peoples. The previous 2006 APS data has been tremendously valuable in understanding the needs of our communities. Your participation in this survey will help provide a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that lead to success in education and employment.
