First Nations Location

First Nations Location The First Nations geographic location dataset contains the geographic location of First Nations (groups and subgroups) in Canada as points as well as basic attributes data. The location identifies where the First Nations live. Each First Nation point represents its administrative office address as it is registered in Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) Band Governance Management System (BGMS). When the First Nation administrative office is located outside its associated most populated reserve boundary, adjustments are made to relocate the point within its boundaries, otherwise within the boundaries of another associated reserve or the city where the administrative office is located. When the administrative office or the First Nation is impossible to locate, the location is based on the best available information on the First Nation (e.g. official First Nation Web site). A connection with the BGMS is in place to ensure that any update to the system is reflected in the attributes data associated with the location of each First Nation. This dataset is Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) and Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) official source for First Nation geographic location on maps. 2022-11-22 Indigenous Services Canada aadnc.infopubs.aandc@canada.ca Form DescriptorsSociety and CultureFirst NationBandAboriginalIndian and Northen Affairs CanadaINACIndigenous and Northern Affairs CanadaIndigenous Services CanadaISCCrown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs CanadaCIRNACIndigenous peoplesIndigenous landsIndiansIndigenous reserves First Nations LocationWMS https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/services/Donnees_Ouvertes-Open_Data/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html First Nations LocationWMS https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/services/Donnees_Ouvertes-Open_Data/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Web Feature Service (WFS)WFS https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/services/Donnees_Ouvertes-Open_Data/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/MapServer/WFSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WFS Pre-packaged FGDB fileFGDB/GDB https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/directories/output/DonneesOuvertes_OpenData/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation_FGDB.zip Pre-packaged SHP fileSHP https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/directories/output/DonneesOuvertes_OpenData/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation_SHP.zip Pre-packaged CSV fileCSV https://data.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/geomatics/directories/output/DonneesOuvertes_OpenData/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation/Premiere_Nation_First_Nation_CSV.zip Data Dictionary -
