Abstract

The Aboriginal people of Canada are considered to be part of the fourth world because although they are resident in the first world, many are marginalized and live in remote locations. The Aboriginal populations of Canada experienced lower health status than members of the dominant society experiencing a disproportionate burden of morbidity and mortality and having many social, economic and health indicators similar to those in middle-income nations. In 2001, Canada ranked eighth on the UN’s Human Development Index. Using the same index, Canada’s Aboriginal population ranked 32.
