First Nations education in Yukon

11. Yukon is home to 14 First Nations who make up about 25 percent of the Yukon population.

Report Highlights Ontario’s Housing Needs – Where’s Home? 2008

1 Preface

We go to press this year (March 2009) as the world economy continues to slide into one of the deepest recessions of the last 50 years. Here in Ontario it is, as yet, unclear how serious and prolonged this situation will be. Our dependence on the auto sector and on exports to the United States suggest that the next few years will be, to say the least, very challenging. This, of course, will especially apply to our constituency of low income tenants and co-op members. These families and individuals are more vulnerable to economic downturns, often relying on part time hours for their income. Further, they have a relative position in the economic hierarchy that has been steadily slipping relative to homeowners and those in higher income groups.
