|dc.description||Being a point-in-time review of the Official Plans, means that while these documents are accurate between May-August 2017, from time-to-time they may undergo changes that will not be tracked by this study. The goal of this review was to get an overall sense of how Indigenous peoples are included in OPs at the time, but this study is unable to account for the evolving nature of these documents. County data tables were used to collect general information about the municipalities.
Information was collected on the following attributes:
a. Database Name
c. Type of Municipality
d. Region, County, District, or Single Tier
e. County Within
f. Official Plan Prior to 2014
g. Amendments before 2014
h. Official Plan Post 2014
i. Amendments after 2014
j. Number of Indigenous Communities
k. Names of Indigenous Communities
l. Treaty Territory
n. Year Collected
This information was collected through online source material. Indigenous communities were located by looking at the maps sourced below, as well as by researching Indigenous service providers in these municipalities. Where data was taken from sources outside of the ones listed below, they are listed in the source tab for each row.
Treaty territories were determined by approximating the city’s location on the Ontario Government’s First nations and Treaties Map:
Population was determined through Statistics Canada; date of the population data is included in the Year Collected row. The link is included in the source column.
Links to Official Plans and amendments found in their respective sections. This was a preliminary data search and some of the files are no longer correct as some of the municipalities sent updated copies.||en_US
|dc.description.abstract||This data was gathered and evaluated as part of a point-in-time study of Ontario municipal Official Plans (OPs) for single tier municipalities, regional municipalities, and counties for the Planning With Indigenous Peoples (PWIP) Research Group by Asheika Sood, Research Assistant and Leela Viswanathan, Principal Investigator
These tables list inclusions of Indigenous peoples in Official Plans by keyword: First Nation, Indigenous, Aboriginal, and Metis (searched without the accent for the purposes of the study). These inclusions are listed in the respective sections with the Number of Hits of each keyword and the page number and section within which the inclusion is found. Please refer to the document “Introduction to Point-In-Time Evaluation of OPs” to obtain information on how to read the tables.||en_US
