They increased almost 20% in Thunder Bay. I didn't read the articles above so I'm probably repeating something, but most of them are coming in for jobs and education opportunities which they lack on reserves. Ontario's first nations communities are among the most impoverished places in the western hemisphere.

Of the 5,000 people in my census tract, about 1300 are aboriginal, though it seems like more as I live along the main street which is dominated by aboriginal families. (The inner neighbourhood is still very white)
