‘Jumping On The Gravy Train?’

‘More people ‘identifying’ as ‘indigenous’, expert says.’

“Alberta’s ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} population is growing rapidly, but one expert says it’s unlikely the growth is the result of a baby boom. 

“Alberta’s ‘First Nation’ {Indian Bands}, Métis and Inuit populations collectively increased by 37.1% from 2006 to 2016, while the non-‘indigenous’ population grew by 22.3%, according to Alberta’s Office of Statistics and Information report based on census data.

“Chris Andersen, professor and dean of the University of Alberta’s Faculty of ‘Native Studies’, said the ‘indigenous’ population is increasing partially because more people are ‘identifying’ as ‘indigenous’.

“He noted some ‘self-reported’ ‘indigenous’ people don’t necessarily have official status under the Indian Act.

There’s this growing what [demographers] have been calling ‘ethnic mobility’ {Lol…} whereby people who didn’t formally identify as ‘indigenous’ in the past, have begun to do so now. And they might be the first person in their family to identify as ‘indigenous’ in one or two, or sometimes even more generations“, 

said Andersen, whose research focuses on the Métis {mixed race} population.

There’s probably very little doubt that ‘indigenous’ people have higher fertility rates than non-‘indigenous’ people for the most part, but I think a lot of what we’re seeing in terms of the growth is from ‘ethnic mobility’, rather than simply from fertility and a lack of mortality.”

“With about 258,640 residents identifying as ‘indigenous’ in 2016, Alberta has the third largest ‘indigenous’ population among the provinces in Canada, following Ontario and B.C., according to the government report. Edmonton has the largest number of ‘indigenous’ residents in Alberta, with about 83,750 people in 2016 — 32.4% of the total ‘indigenous’ population in the province…

“There hasn’t been much research into why people ‘self-identify’, Andersen said. He’s not opposed to the practice, but noted that not everyone who self-identifies does so with the best intentions. In the Maritimes, for example, Andersen said membership of Mé​tis organizations has increased dramatically.

“He highlighted controversy surrounding certain groups in the east, including an organization accused of encouraging members to get tax breaks by illegally using their “Métis cards“.

Those kind of things where there’s a more or less … push to get benefits is something that causes a lot of head-scratching among people,”
Andersen said…

“Alberta ‘Indigenous’ Relations Minister Richard Feehan said he wouldn’t speculate on the reason behind the expanding population, but noted the government has prepared for the growth.

One of the government’s main focuses is on housing, Feehan said, highlighting a $120-million program geared toward providing affordable homes for ‘indigenous’ people across the province.

{It is the federal government’s Constitutional obligation to do so. Alberta has NO legal obligation in this regard…}
