Northern Manitoba is the area defined within the four Statistics Canada census divisons: number 19, 21, 22 and 23. It is the biggiest area of Manitoba and has a substantial population of Aborginal descent. The poor living conditions of the communities situated within this area have been the subject of much controversy. This paper seeks to contribute to the discussion by exploring the social and economic changes that they have experienced over the past two and a half decades.
