Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study

Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study

Speaking directly with a representative group of 2,614 First Nations peoples, Métis and Inuit living in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Ottawa, as well as 2,501 non-Aboriginal Canadians, the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study offers Canadians a new perspective on the values, experiences and aspirations of Aboriginal peoples living in these major Canadian cities.

Archival Initiative

For more information about the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study fonds, view the online description.

A copy of the complete Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study web site (UAPS.ca) was made on March 11, 2013. The copy of this original site archives and preserves the content, which includes information about the study, data, and reports. Further, the copy attempts to conserve the functionality and original look and feel of the site.

Minor alterations have been made to the site, including the setting of a banner to signal to visitors that the site is no longer being actively updated and to point to additional resources related to the study identified below.

As additional preservation measures, we will be capturing the site using the Internet Archive's Archive-It and committing the site as an archival unit to our LOCKSS network.

We have also made copies of the High Definition (HD), Standard Definition (SD) and Mobile versions of 32 videos from Vimeo and have added them to the University of Winnipeg institutional repository,WinnSpace.
