Indigenous Data Toolkit
This Toolkit supports Indigenous governments to use and manage socioeconomic data to improve life for their peoples, and in ways that reflect their cultural traditions.
This Toolkit has been created by and for Self-Governing Indigenous Governments (SGIGs). While some of the content is specific to this context, much of it will be useful for other Indigenous governments and organizations as well.
First Nations Information Governance Centre
Supporting and advocating for evidence‑based decision making is what has fueled the important work of the First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC) since its inception as an independent non‑profit more than a decade ago. Today, FNIGC and its partners remain at the forefront of First Nations data sovereignty and information governance efforts.
First Nations Public Service Secretariat
The First Nations Public Service Secretariat (FNPSS) supports BC First Nation communities and organizations across the core public service sectors as they pursue excellence in their own governments and administrations.
Government of Canada
Statistics Canada is the national statistical office. The agency ensures Canadians have the key information on Canada's economy, society and environment that they require to function effectively as citizens and decision makers.
Disaggregated Data: Disaggregated data helps us better understand data trends by looking at it in smaller, more specific groups or categories. Examples include breaking down data collection into age groups, gender, geographic location (i.e., urban vs rural), and socioeconomic status.
Indicators: An indicator is a specific data point or piece of information that is used to measure, monitor, or signal changes of a population, trend, or situation. For example, indicators can be used to measure community wellness, level of education or program outcomes.
Program Evaluation : Program evaluations are commonly used in the non-profit organizations to assess the overall impact and effectiveness of a program. Program evaluations serve several purposes, such as providing data-driven insights to inform decisions about funding, continuation, or expansion of programs.
Program Framework: A Program Framework provides a visual or roadmap for understanding how a program is designed, how it operates and how it is expected to achieve its goals and objectives.
