Abstract:

"First Nations across Canada have unique economic realities, in particular, a consistently low standard of living plagues most First Nation residents. As a result of poor economic situations in many First Nations, there is often a lack of resilience to large economical, environmental, and social changes in First Nation communities. First Nation economies are based on both subsistence and income-generating systems; the latter are often natural resource-based, such as forestry or tourism (e.g., eco-tourism, guiding) and are therefore vulnerable to changes in the natural environment. First Nation subsistence economic systems, such as hunting and gathering, are dependent upon the natural environment and are therefore highly susceptible to climate change and its associated impacts."
