Poverty as a social determinant for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis health

January 2009

Poverty and ill-health are inextricably linked. In both rich and poor countries, the lower an individual's socio-economic status, the worse their health is. This fact sheet provides an overview of indicators of poverty in First Nations, Inuit and Métis populations; and some strategies aimed at alleviating poverty in these populations.
