Calgary, Alberta
Aboriginal Services

Suicide is a major concern in the Aboriginal community. One in six (17%) of Aboriginal persons who responded to a City of Calgary survey in 2009 had concerns that they – or someone in their household was suicidal. This was almost twice the rate of concern among the non-Aboriginal survey respondents (9%).

MUNICIPAL POLICIES AND STATS

Social Sustainability Framework & Urban Aboriginal Peoples
Family & Community Support Services (FCSS) in Calgary is a joint municipal and provincial funding program that supports the Social Sustainability Framework. One of the vulnerable populations that the Social Sustainability Framework focuses on is Aboriginal peoples. Increasing social inclusion for Calgary urban Aboriginal families is important. This population includes "individuals and communities that have been affected by the multigenerational impacts of colonialism, such as the effects of residential schools."

These effects may include systemic racism and discrimination, resulting in chronic low income, high mobility, loss of culture, and other negative social indicators. Aboriginal peoples include "First Nations (status, non-status and Bill C-31 individuals), Métis, and Inuit people."

For additional information on FCSS, or funding opportunities under the new framework, please contact: Aboriginal Social Planner/Community Development

Iqaluit, NUNAVUT
Aboriginal Services

Government practices required that the Inuit be sorted into a bureaucratic system that would provide some accountability. So, they were first given numbers, to be worn on tags around their necks, people here recall. Later, they were told to take surnames. And as they were moved into towns, they were discouraged from practicing their religion and culture, according to interviews and government documents. Now, decades after this infiltration, the Inuit are reclaiming much of what was lost, including their names.

Hundreds of Inuit in the new territory of Nunavut are going to court to correct old misspellings and to finally, officially cast off the numbers. It is more than symbolic, people here say. For many, it is an act of reclaiming an identity that was nearly wiped out.

So, unlike most of Canada (Chart 1), Nunavut has a very large segment of the population that is quite young and that will likely dominate public policy in Nunavut for years to come (e.g., the need for increased demand for educational related services, youth employment opportunities) 

Resource / Link: http://www.city.iqaluit.nu.ca/i18n/english/demo.html

Overcrowding at home is not the only problem that leads to the lower educational attainment of aboriginal children. The education system itself contributes to the problem. A particular issue is that in many small communities there is a very high turnover rate for teachers, many of whom are short-term migrants from elsewhere in Canada.

MUNICIPAL POLICIES AND STATS

The following listings include aboriginal policies and programs of the municipal government.

Aboriginal Working Committee

In March 2007, City Council approved a report to establish the City of Ottawa Aboriginal Working Committee. The working committee is made up of representatives from:
• Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition
• City of Ottawa
• United Way/Centraide Ottawa
• Ottawa Police Services
• Champlain Local Health Integration Network
The mandate of the City of Ottawa Aboriginal Working Committee is to work collectively to identify, prioritize and develop solutions to address emerging issues that impact Aboriginal people in Ottawa, and to maximize the effectiveness of services delivered to the Aboriginal community. Additional outcomes of the partnership would create:
• A stronger communication link to Council on issues or challenges experienced within the Aboriginal community
• Opportunities for the City to work with other levels of government and businesses to influence social policies that impact the well being of the Aboriginal community
• Enhance the effectiveness of service delivery

In August & September 2007, the Committee surveyed the Aboriginal community to gather feedback and input to meet the objective outlined above. Two surveys were designed to capture perspectives of both service providers and individual clients of community services. The results were as follows:
• Top 6 priorities identified by the Aboriginal Community
 Employment and training (62.5 per cent)
 Housing and homelessness (61.72 per cent)
 Culture and language (60.94 per cent)
 Health issues (49.22 per cent)
 Access to service (49.22 per cent)
 Addictions, mental health and life skills (49.22 per cent)
• Top 6 priorities identified by Service Providers
 Housing and homelessness (59.04 per cent)
 Health Issues (57.83 per cent)
 Addictions, mental health and life skills (48.19 per cent)
 Culture and language (45.78 per cent)
 Employment and training (43.37 per cent)
 Poverty (30.12 per cent)
• Services used by the Community: Education, Housing, Health Clinics, Social Services, Recreation
• Barriers in accessing services in both surveys: services are not culturally specific, transportation, are not aware of services, long waiting lists, racism
• Career opportunities considered by the Aboriginal community include: Aboriginal Service Provider, Cultural Services and Community Funding and Employment and Financial Assistance, Education

Aboriginal Leadership Development

During the summer of 2009, the City of Ottawa, in partnership with the Aboriginal Coalition, embarked on an Aboriginal Youth Leadership Development pilot project. The intent was to recruit local Aboriginal youth and provide them with culturally customized Leadership Development training as well as core training such as standard First Aid, Basic Rescuer CPR (level C), AED and High Five principles of Healthy Child Development Certification. Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and the Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre recruited twelve youth who received this training.

Regina, SASKATCHEWAN
Aboriginal Services

The lack of an adequate economic base has been one of the most serious problems facing Saskatchewan First Nations. Indian agriculture has historically been a failure because of defects in government policies involving inadequate land management approaches and insufficient support for modernization of technology; as a result, agriculture has not proven to be the economic salvation that was promised under the treaties. Today, the economy of the reserves remains largely dependent on government transfer payments: opportunities remain few and unemployment remains high.

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories
Aboriginal Services

Some in Yellowknife say only a few of the candidates running in next week's city election have any Dene, Inuit or Metis connections, even though almost one-quarter of the population is of aboriginal descent. The issue came up recently for aboriginal health-care professional Sandra Lockhart, who helped out at a recent election forum in the capital city earlier this month.

Fifty percent of the people living in the Northwest Territories are Aboriginal. This is the second largest percentage Aboriginal population of all provinces and territories reported in the 2001 Census.
