Employment and Education Among Aboriginal Peoples: A New Perspective from the 2011 National Household Survey (2013)

TD Economics Special Report

This report examines data from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) suggesting that the labour market and income gaps between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Canada continue to persist.

Worse still, the progress made since 1996 in closing those employment gaps has stagnated since the 2006 census, the authors note. The income data from the NHS also suggest that the earnings gap between the two groups remains persistent.
