List of Indian reserves in Canada by population

This is a list of Indian reserves in Canada which have over 500 people, listed in order of population from data collected during the 2006 Census of Canada, unless otherwise cited from Aboriginal Affairs.[1] Approximately 40% of First Nations people live on federally recognized Indian reserves.[2] Note: this list is incomplete in that many Indian Reserves are "Incompletely enumerated", meaning that "enumeration was not permitted or was interrupted before it could be completed."[3] There are 13 Indian reserves which have not been enumerated in the last 3 censuses.[4]
