Dr. Evelyn Peters launched the Atlas of Urban Aboriginal People. It attempts to make some information about Aboriginal people in urban areas in Canada available to a wide audience by mapping their changing residential locations in urban neighbourhoods. The Atlas focuses on the five prairie cities of Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Edmonton, and Calgary from 1981 to 2011. It identifies the percentage of Aboriginal, Métis and First Nations people living in different census tracts and enumeration/dissemination areas of the city. The intent of the 

Atlas is to provide information about where Aboriginal people live in cities and patterns of changes over time as a basis for policy making and research. View the Atlas
