For the purposes of this report, First Nations people are identified through a variety of mechanisms. This is because not any one method generates a complete list of the First Nations population in Manitoba. The mechanisms used are:

  • PHINs of cases and tested individuals are matched up to Status First Nations in the Indian Status Registry – ISR. This list is current as of October 2017 only.
  • Self-report in the course of the COVID case investigation.
  • Manual review of familial linkages identified in the course of COVID case investigations. Linkages are made by reported relationships, shared last names or addresses, and only counts horizontal- sibling – or downward – offspring – linkages.
