Finding the data: Indigenous Peoples
The second presentation in the series on finding data about marginalized or underrepresented populations will explore data about Indigenous Peoples. Kayla Lar-Son will provide context and introduce the First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC) and the principles of OCAP (ownership, control, access, and possession). The presentation will also include a brief exploration of Statistics Canada Census and survey data.
About the series
Indigenous Peoples, racialized groups, and people who identify as LGBTQ+ are often underrepresented or hidden in the datasets we rely on for research. Data about mental health, substance abuse, and homelessness can also be difficult to find. This series identifies potential data sources and discuss some of the historical and social context that can make the data harder to find.
