Unemployment rates for Aboriginals has doubled. Their income is 33% less than it was, while it is still 30% less than non-Aboriginals.
According to a 2006 study Aboriginals made up 3% of Canada’s population but between the years of 1997-2004 they were 17% victims and 36% of homicides. They’re 10% more likely to be accused of a homicide rather than a non-aboriginal.
How's life nowadays?
The Aboriginals suicide rate is the highest in the world. But in reality with all the hate and judgement these people get do you really blame them? They are so mistreated in our society it's not even funny. They're one of our lands founders and this is how we treat them. From Residential schools to not hiring someone for a job because of their race, disgusting. This society has to change, are you willing to help be that change. Every little bit helps.
First it starts with child welfare and how from the Canadian budget they’ve lost all fundings. In 2009 $600,000 was allotted for funding different programs like hunger, court and even social service workers. 18 programs were cut and natives weren’t given alternative resources. Unequal access to Canadians health care system left aboriginals hanging.
