Population

There are over 1.6 million Indigenous peoples in Canada, comprising about 4.9% of the total population.

Population Projections

In the next two decades, the Aboriginal population is likely to exceed 2.5 million persons

Population Growth

According to the 2016 Canadian census, the Indigenous population in Canada grew by 42.5% between 2006 and 2016, which is more than four times faster than the non-Indigenous population growth rate of 10.7% during the same period.

This growth is largely attributed to higher birth rates and a younger age structure among Indigenous peoples in Canada. Additionally, there has been an increasing number of individuals who self-identify as Indigenous in recent years, which has contributed to the growth in the Indigenous population.

Right to full enjoyment

Indigenous peoples have the right to the full enjoyment.

The first of the UNDRIP’s 46 articles declares that “Indigenous peoples have the right to the full enjoyment, as a collective or as individuals, of all human rights and fundamental freedoms as recognized in the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights law.” The Declaration goes on to guarantee the rights of Indigenous peoples to enjoy and practice their cultures and customs, their religions, and their languages, and to develop and strengthen their economies and their social and political institutions. Indigenous peoples have the right to be free from discrimination, and the right to a nationality.
