Using FNIGC Data Online

Finding Tables & Charts

  • FNIGC Data Online is an easy and free-to-use tool that gives the user access to hundreds of tables and charts from FNIGC’s extensive First Nations data repository. There are a few ways to access these data.

  • On the home page, simply select a survey in the ‘Choose a Survey’ field and click the ‘SEARCH’ button. You can narrow down these results by selecting a theme or category in the ‘Filter by Category’ field and clicking on the ‘SEARCH’ button.

  • You may also filter your results by entering a subject or theme (i.e., ‘Language’) in the ‘Search by Keywords’ field and clicking ‘SEARCH’. All search results will then appear below, including all charts and tables that meet your search criteria.

  • Once you have your search results, you can organize them using the 'Workspace' feature.

Creating a Workspace

  • FNIGC Data Online includes a Workspace feature that allows you to add as many tables and graphs to a temporary space as you want. Note that below each table or chart in your results, you will find an ‘Add to Workspace’ checkbox. Simply click these boxes on the data that you want to save (or, if you want them all, by clicking ‘Add All’ at the top of the page) then clicking the ‘Add/Remove Selected’ button at the top or bottom of the page.

  • You will then be directed to ‘My Data Workspace’ section, where you will find the charts and tables you have added. You may add additional charts and tables to your Workspace by clicking the ‘Search/Add more to Workspace’ button. This will return you to the search page where you can find and add more charts and tables to your Workspace.

  • Within your Workspace you can remove or save, share and print your tables and graphs for future reference. Once you Save your Workspace, you can access it again from the ‘My Workspaces’ menu at the top of your screen.

  • To load a previously saved Workspace (if you have not cleared your browser cookies) simply click and select from the ‘My Workspaces’ menu at the top right-hand side of the page. This will load your previously saved charts and graphs. 

  • Note: you may also ‘Delete’ your Workspace at any time.
