In Canada alone, Aboriginal people make up about 3 percent of Canada's inhabitants. It can be estimated that 35 percent of Canada's aboriginal or native peoples live in urban places such as Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Toronto. Each of these places has populations greater than 20,000. Aboriginals also live throughout Canada in all of our provinces with a large amount in the Prairie Provinces. It can be estimated that less than half of Canada’s aboriginal people live on reserves. In the arctic, the inuit are the majority because the harsh winter climate has discouraged European settlement. In not only Canada, but throughout the world, Aboriginals have arranged themselves into "tribes", each tribe having there own territory, language, and culture.
