This brief report explores the health picture of Métis youth in British Columbia. It is based on data from the 2008 BC Adolescent Health Survey (AHS). The data presented here is about Métis youth in the mainstream public school system, and includes youth who were present on the day the survey was administered. It therefore may not be representative of all Métis youth in the province. This report shows that the majority of Métis youth aged 12 to 19 years are doing well, and also highlights the protective factors which are associated with reduced risk behaviours and improved health outcomes.
