New First Nations data is now available.
Now is the Time is a brand new report with about First Nations communities, thanks to the First Nations Information Governance Centre.
FNIGC writes that Now is the Time: Our Data, Our Stories, Our Future,The National Report of the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey is “The most technically complex survey in FNIGC’s history, the report of the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey (FNREEES, or REEES) shows strong associations between the importance First Nations people place on language, culture and family, and the educational, employment, health, and well-being outcomes in their communities.”
First Nations Data: Quick Facts
Sometimes, you need a statistic quickly. The Drawing Change team was thrilled to create an easy to read, 32-page “Quick Facts” version with FNIGC. It uses visuals to communicate key insights into the data. The format is a small, spiral-bound book that is portable and easy to reference.
Drawing Change collaborated with award winning illustrator Julie Flett for the cover, with layout by Karianne Blank and illustrations by Sam Bradd.
“Now is the Time: Our Data, Our Stories, Our Future,The National Report of the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey is the culmination of a landmark five-year survey process conducted by FNIGC, the premier source of information about First Nations people and communities, and its Regional Partners,” writes FNIGC.

Visuals and Infographics
We used visuals throughout this project – in the fall, early survey findings were released using infographics, a compelling powerpoint presentation, and there was live graphic recording at the annual conference. Here are two of the five infographics:
Congratulations on this milestone, FNIGC!
