With the help of provincial and territorial government contacts from across the country, we have updated the Social Assistance Summaries with 2015 data. Individual reports from the provinces and territories are now ready for download. At the time of release, Nunavut figures were not available. A combined report that includes all 12 summaries will be posted in the near future.

Published in February 2016 and now posted to the Indigenous Peoples area of the Canada Social Report, this report synthesizes the findings of the Public Policy Forum’s 2015 roundtable series on access to capital for First Nation people in Canada. It points to practical reforms that could form the basis of a First Nations investment action plan.
