Epidemiological summary of COVID-19 cases in First Nations communities
Data is current as of July 31, 2020
About the charts
Information on demographics and outcomes is currently available for reported cases in First Nations communities.
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 and newly reported cases in First Nations communities
The charts with epidemic curves over time (epi curves) below show:
- the cumulative totals of reported and recovered COVID-19 cases
- newly reported COVID-19 cases in First Nations communities in provinces
The flattening epi curve suggests many First Nations communities are successful in their efforts to stop the spread of infections.
