Base Corrections Census

The only year I found data for an Indigenous peoples census was 2016. At that time, Indigenous populations were less than five percent of the total population of Canada. All being equal, that ratio should be reflected in a similar rate for offenders under the custody of Correctional Service Canada.

The Correctional Service Canada (CSC) data from the Globe and Mail story is broken down per fiscal year by sentences, offenders, various risk elements, and race_group: Indigenous and Non-Indigenous. The data also records race, but under that classification they show values such as Korean or Filipino, which is more ethinicity or nationality. They record items such as White and British Isles under race, which is just odd.

Indigenous Population 2016: Total: 1673785

Canada Population 2016: Total: 35871136

Indigenous/Canada Population 2016: pct: 4.67%

This data shows raw numbers of persons in custody or under community supervision by race_group for each fiscal year.
