Vancouver's Aboriginal communities
Vancouver has the third-largest population of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, after Winnipeg and Edmonton.
In addition to three Coast Salish Nations who are indigenous to this area, the city is also home to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit from all over the country.
City staff play an important role in helping our Aboriginal communities gain access to services, overcome barriers, and have a voice in civic government.
They also bring groups together to explore opportunities, build networks, and increase cross-cultural understanding.
