The Atlas of the First Nations of Québec population registered in the Indian Register is a georeferenced and interactive database. It brings together statistical data concerning the Aboriginal population registered in Quebec from 1998 to 2018, depending on whether they live on reserve or off reserve; these data come from Indigenous Services Canada (SAC) which publishes annually on its website a document entitled Registered Indian Population by Sex and Type of Residence.
The department is required by the Indian Act to record in the Indian Register the names of individuals in accordance with the law. The data contained in this atlas correspond to the Registered Indian population as recorded on December 31 of each year. However, the Indian Register « does not include all persons who are entitled to be registered according to the Indian Act, only those who have applied to be registered and whose entitlement has been verified. » (AANDC 2014). Consequently, the data on the registered Indian population does not constitute an exact count of the population of each reserve.
The Atlas offers series of maps and histograms presenting annual compilations for the whole of Québec on the one hand, and for each of the First Nation on the other. The maps are built from different technologies that allow the development of interactive cartography features on the Internet.
By collecting this data, Réseau DIALOG aims to make information essential to understanding Aboriginal realities in Québec accessible by various electronic and educational means.
