‘Where’s the Genocide?’

Who would ever ‘identify’ as an oppressed person unless there were benefits involved? Why else would anyone subject themselves to the supposed ‘systemic racism’ that would come with this ‘identity’?

The number of people ‘identifying’ as ‘Indigenous’ {Canadian Aboriginals are ‘Indigenous’ to Siberia and Mongolia} in Canada grew almost twice as fast as the non-‘Indigenous’ population and now stands at 1.8 million — about five per cent of the population — according to newly-released census data.

From 2016 to 2021, the number of people in Canada ‘identifying’ as ‘Indigenous’ grew by 9.4%. The non-‘Indigenous’ population grew by just 5.3% over the same period.

“While that growth rate is high, it’s almost half the growth rate for the population that identified as ‘Indigenous’ between 2011 and 2016, which was 18.9%.

The 2021 census attributed that faster growth rate to a higher birth rate and changes over time in how census questions are answered {!}.

In general, respondents have become more likely to ‘identify’ as ‘Indigenous’ over time {!?!},”

the census said.

The reasons people are more likely to ‘identify’ as ‘Indigenous’ may be related to social factors and external factors, such as changes to legislation or court rulings {and government money}.”

“Statistics Canada said that because of difficulties in collecting census data on ‘First Nations’{‘Aboriginals’} and other ‘Indigenous’ communities, some caution should be exercised in comparing census years.

“The census also found that the ‘Indigenous’ population is also younger than the non-‘Indigenous’ population. Just over one in six ‘Indigenous’ people aged 15 to 64 — or 17.2% of working-age ‘Indigenous’ people — were 55 to 64 years of age, while the same cohort made up 22% of the non-‘Indigenous’ population.

The average age of ‘Indigenous’ people was 33.6 years in 2021, compared with 41.8 years for the non-‘Indigenous’ population“,

the census said.

“The Inuit were the youngest of the three ‘Indigenous’ population groups, with an average age of 28.9 years. ‘First Nations’ people reported an average age of 32.5 years while Métis peoples reported an average age of 35.9.

{The Inuit are most certainly NOT ‘Indigenous’ to Canada:

The Genocide of the Dorset’:
The Thule (ancestors of today’s Inuit), originally from Siberia, were gradually expanding across the Arctic, displacing the older, aboriginal Dorset {see below} people. By roughly 1200 AD, the Dorset had vanished, killed off in warfare with the Thule… Inuit oral traditions tell of how the Dorset were a gentle people without bows and arrows, and thus easy to kill and drive away…”

“‘Indigenous’ populations also have a greater percentage of children than the average. Kids age 14 and under accounted for 25.4% of the ‘Indigenous’ population, while children made up just 16% of the non-‘Indigenous’ population.

“The 2021 census also found that 3.2% of ‘Indigenous’ children in Canada were in foster care, compared to just 0.2% of non-‘Indigenous’ children in Canada. ‘Indigenous’ children accounted for more than half of all children in foster care, at 53.8%, despite representing only 7.7% of children 14 and under in Canada.

Despite the federal government’s efforts to reduce the ‘over-representation’ {?} of ‘Indigenous’ children and youth in foster care, the number of ‘Indigenous’ children in foster care remains almost unchanged since 2016.

{Despite the CBC’s racist reluctance to look at reality, the fact remains that alcohol and drug addiction rates among the Aboriginal communities are far higher than among the rest of the population, and child neglect and abuse is one of the consequences.}

“Of the 459,210 ‘Indigenous’ children aged 14 and under, 14.2% lived with at least one grandparent, compared with just 8.9% of non-‘Indigenous’ children. More than one third, or 35.8%, of ‘Indigenous’ children lived in a single-parent household, compared to 56% who lived in a two-parent household.

The number of ‘Indigenous’ people living in housing that was in need of major repairs {which is the responsibility of the tribal council} was almost three times higher in 2021 than it was for non-‘Indigenous’ Canadians, although it has fallen slightly since the 2016 census.

“Almost one in six ‘Indigenous’ people, or 16.4%, lived in a place that was in need of major repairs, a decline of 2.7% from 2016. The number of non-‘Indigenous’ Canadians living in housing that needs major work stood at 5.7%.

“The decline in the number of ‘Indigenous’ people living in housing in disrepair did not decline evenly across all ‘Indigenous’ groups over the last five years. The number of ‘First Nations’{‘Aboriginals’} living in housing that needed major repairs declined by almost four per cent, while the number of Métis living in housing in disrepair declined by only 1.2% and the number of Inuit living in defective housing did not change.

“The census also found that 17.1% of ‘Indigenous’ people lived in crowded housing, compared to just 9.4% of non-‘Indigenous’ Canadians. More than 40% of Inuit lived in crowded housing, compared with 21.4% of ‘First Nations’ and 7.9% of Métis.

“While ‘Indigenous’ people were more likely to live in crowded housing compared with the non-‘Indigenous’ population, the gap between the two groups narrowed from 9.5% 2016 to 7.8% in 2021.

“For the first time, low-income data was collected for all geographic regions of the country including northern areas and reserves, revealing that 18.8% of ‘Indigenous’ people lived in a low-income household compared with just 10.7% of non-‘Indigenous’ Canadians.

“While still high, the number of ‘Indigenous’ people living in a low-income household dropped dramatically since the time of the last census, from 28.1% to 18.8%, the rate of decline was heavily influenced by the actions by the federal government.

This downward trend in low income has been observed across Canada and was largely driven by government transfers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic“,

the census said.

“While their numbers are on the decline overall, 24.6% of ‘Indigenous’ children 14 years and younger lived in a low-income household in 2021. The comparable rate for non-‘Indigenous’ children was 11.1%.

“The census also recorded more than 70 ‘Indigenous’ languages{almost never used} across more than 600 ‘First Nations’, 50 Inuit communities and the “the plurality of groups representing Métis {so-called} ‘nationhood’.

“The census found that from 2016 to 2021, the number of ‘Indigenous’ people that could hold a conversation in an ‘Indigenous’ language declined by 4.3%{! There is no need for it…}. This decline was attributed to a 8.1% decrease in the number of ‘Indigenous’ people whose first language learned in childhood was ‘Indigenous’ {!}.

“The census found that while the number of ‘Indigenous’ people with an ‘Indigenous’ mother tongue had declined, the number of ‘Indigenous’ people who learned to speak an ‘Indigenous’ language increased by 7% over the same period.

‘Highlights of the 2021 census on Indigenous population in Canada’:

–There were 624,220 Métis {mixed-Race ‘White’ and Aboriginal} living in Canada, up 6.3 % from 2016.

{The increase is due to the Supreme Court labelling them as ‘Aboriginal’ and the resulting availability of government Race-based funding.}

–There were 70,545 Inuit living in Canada.

–There were 1,048,405 ‘First Nations’ living in Canada.

–There were 801,045 ‘Indigenous’ people living in large urban centres, up 12.5% from 2016 to 2021.

–The ‘Indigenous’ population was 8.2 years younger than the non-‘Indigenous’ population overall.

–‘Indigenous’ people were more likely than the non-‘Indigenous’ population to be living in a dwelling that was in need of major repairs (16.4% compared to 5.7%) or live in crowded housing (17.1% compared to 9.4%).

–Almost one in five ‘Indigenous’ people in Canada (18.8%) lived in a low-income household. This was down nearly 10 percentage points from 2016, but the decline was likely driven by government transfers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Statistics Canada.”
