"This study breaks new ground by examining data from Canada’s last three
censuses — 1996, 2001 and 2006 — to measure the income gap between Aboriginal peoples and the rest of Canadians. […] In this paper, we look at Aboriginal peoples’ income data, where they live, their level of education, their gender and other variables. The results show significant and troubling levels of income inequality. They also offer clues to policy interventions that could not only help close the gap between Aboriginal peoples and the rest of Canadians but could also help wipe out poverty for Aboriginal peoples within our lifetime."
