Checking multiple sectors in a search functions as an “and” rather than an “or” search. In other words, checking both “women” and “Indigenous peoples” sectors will only produce results that include records coded as both women and Indigenous peoples. The Public Accounts (Federal, British Columbia, Nova Scotia) records were coded into four sectors: environment, human rights, Indigenous Peoples, and women (with Indigenous Government as a sub-category of Indigenous Peoples). The municipal records were coded for these sectors as well as five additional: Arts, Culture, Economic, Heritage, Recreation (Public Accounts records were not coded for these five sectors). See the Field Descriptions page for further information on coding and sectors.
The records were coded based on names of organizations such as the Young Women’s Christian Association (women) or the Canadian Institute for Climate Studies (environment). Whether or not an organization was included in one of the sectors was based on one of two factors: membership and/or mandate. Self-identified human rights or civil liberties organizations, for instance, were coded as human rights (e.g. Powell River Civil Liberties Association or B.C. Human Rights Council). Similarly, organizations were included if their primary mandate fit within one of these sectors, such as transition homes or family crisis centres for women. At the same time, organizations whose membership was primarily Indigenous Peoples or women were included, such as the Victorian Order of Nurses. The data collection excluded grants to governments (e.g, municipalities), government agencies, individuals and for-profit organizations.
Indigenous governments: This category is a sub-set of the Indigenous peoples category (i.e. all records under this category are coded as both Indigenous governments and Indigenous peoples). We included organizations with the following keywords: band, tribe, reserve and government. We also manually reviewed the remaining records to code as Indigenous government those Aboriginal peoples’ communities that did not specify an organization or association (eg. “Algonquin of Pikwakanagan” was included in this sector). Other common keywords for this sector included development corporation, development fund, management services, regional development, education authority, child and family services, fisheries and education authority, construction, housing corporation and association, land corporation, board of education, “Metis and Non-Status” or Non Stat, alcohol and drug abuse, college, Société de Développement.
