About the charts

Information on demographics and outcomes is currently available for cases in First Nations communities as reported to Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).

The charts on this page do not include COVID-19 cases in First Nations individuals residing off reserve or in the territories.

Statistics about First Nations individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 who do not live on a reserve are included in the provincial and territorial case counts, although they are not distinguished as such.

Some First Nations organizations in some provinces are releasing COVID-19 data that combines on- and off-reserve data. Visit:

Cumulative reported, recovered, active, newly reported cases and vaccine doses administered in First Nations communities

The charts with epidemic curves over time (epi curves) below show:

Epidemic curves of COVID-19 cases in First Nations communities on-reserve are available online and updated weekly. As the number of doses administered in First Nations communities continues to increase, the number of active cases in the communities has been dropping.
