What is the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education, and Employment Survey and how was it developed?

Who?

The First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC), with the guidance of its member organizations across Canada, created the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey (FNREEES).

FNIGC and its regional member organizations are interested in supporting capacity development and providing credible, relevant information on First Nations while using the highest standards of data research practices.

We respect the rights of First Nations´ self-determination for research and information management and are in true compliance with the First Nations principles of Ownership, Control, Access, and Possession (OCAP®).

What?

The FNREEES is a survey created by First Nations, for First Nations. It will provide valuable insight and a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that lead to success in early childhood, education, and employment for First Nations living on reserve and in northern communities.

The FNREEES will be conducted in 28 randomly selected communities in Alberta by trained interviewers from the participating community. The FNREEES targets 5 age groups, which are then sub-divided by gender.

  • Early Childhood (0-5.99)
  • Child (6-11.99)
  • Youth (12-17.99)
  • Adult (18-55.99)
  • Adult (55+)

Participants are randomly selected and may choose not to participate. The FNREEES is entirely voluntary.

When?

The Alberta First Nations Information Governance Centre (AFNIGC) has completed implementation of the FNREEES in 28 randomly selected communities in the Alberta Region. The national statistical analysts have cleaned the data for the nation-wide survey and prepared it for the national and regional reports. Our regional analysts are currently preparing the Alberta regional report. The individual community reports are to follow soon after.
