An Indian settlement is a census subdivision outlined by the Canadian government Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada for census purposes. These areas have at least 10 status Indian or non-status Indian people who live, more or less, permanently in the given area. They are usually located on Crown land owned by the federal or provincial government and they have not been set apart for the use and benefit of an Indian band as is the case with Indian reserves.[1]
