Summary, etc.:
"On June 29, 2007, the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) organized a National Day of Action. This one-day event was part of a broader strategy of the AFN, launched in the fall of 2006 to create awareness of First Nations issues; more specifically, it was a call for action against poverty. This book deals with this same issue, not from an advocacy or political viewpoint, but from an empirical and scientific perspective.
As we move further into a new century, it is more important than ever to address the poverty, lack of educational attainment, poor health, and other social problems that affect so many of Canada's aboriginal people.
Aboriginal Well-Being: Canada's Continuing Challenge can give us a better idea of where we ought to be concentrating our policy energies and resources. Aboriginal Well-Being is divided into three sections. The first looks at ways of measuring well-being, the second examines the Human Development Index (HDI), while the third focuses on the Community Well-Being (CWB) Index."--Page 4 of cover.
