Summary
Because suicide was identified as one of the most urgent problems affecting Aboriginal peoples in Canada, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples chose to prepare a special report. In the report, the Commission develops the rationale and recommends the means for a Canada-wide response to the facts of suicide among Aboriginal peoples encompassing: the establishment of crisis centers; resources for community development; and support for self-determination. The report examines the following topics: how suicide among Aboriginal people is similar to suicide among all people and how it is different; who is at most risk and why; programs in effect and other initiatives that might help; key elements in strategies that work; and recommendations for immediate and long-term reduction of the problem
