Aboriginal population of Canada: growth dynamics under conditions of encounter of civilisations

Anatole Romaniuc


This paper endeavours to capture the broad configuration of demographic
evolution of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada from the early contacts with
Europeans to the present. The main stages thereof are identified and the
underlying factors explored, against the historical background of Aboriginal
and European civilisations' encounter. While taking stock of the past, the paper takes a glimpse into the future. It concludes with a review of demographically-driven policy issues that the First Nations are likely to confront as they step into the 21s Century.
