Urban Aboriginal labour force and training strategic framework : identifying our potential ( )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The urban Aboriginal population is the youngest and fastest growing population in Ontario, growing at nearly double the rate of the non-Aboriginal population, 1.8 percent compared to 1.0 percent. Urban Aboriginal youth, under the age of 24, represent 48 percent of the Ontario urban Aboriginal population. The non-Aboriginal population is aging at a higher rate with a median of 37.2 compared to 24.5 for the Aboriginal population. As a result of this aging population, Ontario's labour force is faced with an impending skills shortage that will impact Ontario's public and private sectors' ability to attract and retain necessary skills and labour. With education and training, the young and growing urban Aboriginal population can provide a sustainable solution to the anticipated skilled labour shortages while increasing economic agency among urban Aboriginal people and their communities in Ontario. Strategies must thus be developed to address the challenges faced by the urban Aboriginal population, in particular youth, to better position them to transition into the Ontario labour market
Gladue rights : a call for recommitment and accountability ( )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is almost nine times more likely that an Aboriginal person will be incarcerated by the Canadian justice system than a non-Aboriginal person. Despite the potential of the landmark 1999 Gladue case to decrease the overrepresentation of Aboriginal people in the criminal justice system, it has been over a decade since the Supreme Court's ruling and rates have not declined. While the overall incarceration rate for both provincial and federal institutions across Canada is 130 per 100,000 adults, the incarceration rate for Aboriginal people is 1,024 per 100,000 adults. According to 2006 Census data, 2.7% of the Canadian population self-identified as Aboriginal. In stark contrast, the Office of the Correctional Investigator reported that Aboriginal offenders make up 18.5% of federally incarcerated inmates and estimates that, should these carceral trends continue, Aboriginal inmates could account for 25% of the federal inmate population in less than a decade. When controlling for gender, the incarceration rate has already far surpassed this threshold for women as currently 30% of all female inmates self-identify as Aboriginal. While Canada's federal incarceration rates experienced an overall decline of 12.5% from 1996-2004, the rate of First Nations inmates committed to federal institutions rose by 21.7%, and the rate of First Nations women inmates rose by 74.2% during this same time period. Tragically, the situation for Aboriginal youth in custody mirrors these trends and in 2000, 41.3% of incarcerated Aboriginal offenders were 25 years or younger. In Ontario, Aboriginal people account for 2% of the overall population, but make up 9% of the provincially incarcerated population according to 2006 census data. While these statistics are shocking, they are not new. Over representation in the justice system today is linked to Aboriginal people's long, entrenched history with the Canadian justice system through which colonial regimes including the reserve system, residential schools, and child welfare have been strictly regulated. The effects of the Canadian justice system's reinforcing role in the systematic banning of traditions and cultural practices, the outlawing of Indigenous governance structures, the regulation of economic pursuits, and the breakdown of family life have had a lasting impact on the social and economic marginalization of Aboriginal people in today's society. These colonial legacies have been passed down to younger generations and have been manifested as social ills perpetuating cycles of lateral violence, victimization, sexual abuse, and subsequently, poverty, addictions, and the criminalization of a disproportionate number of Aboriginal people
