Abstract

The purpose of this study is to describe findings of the 2006 Aboriginal Peoples Survey that was conducted by Statistics Canada. They collected data on the living conditions and lifestyles of Aboriginal peoples living off-reserve in Canada. The thesis describes diabetes, co-morbidities, and social determinants of health that affect this population through the lens of intersectionality and Dr. Nancy Krieger's Eco-Social theory.
