This report provides an overview of the labour market integration of the off‑reserve Aboriginal population in Canada’s ten provinces during and after the 2008/2009 economic downturn, as compared to the non‑Aboriginal population. Using annual averages from the Labour Force Survey (LFS), covering the period of 2007 to 2015, the main focus is on Aboriginal people in the core working ages (25 to 54 years), although youth (aged 15 to 24 years) and older adults (aged 55 years and older) are considered separately. In addition to Aboriginal group, labour market indicators are distinguished by gender, geography (province/region of residence), education, lone parenthood, and marital status. The distribution of work characteristics (e.g., self‑employment, sector of employment, usual work hours, wages, job tenure, industry, and occupation) by Aboriginal status are also explored.
