What has created the vulnerability of Indigenous people to be involved in the criminal justice and correctional systems in Canada?

People sentenced to terms of imprisonment are not always there for the commission of serious crimes against the person. Prisons are also used as “catch-basins” for social problems, for chronic offenders who commit relatively minor offences, for those who the public deems most in need of punishment (for example, drug offenders), and for property offenders. In fact, those who commit serious violent offences are generally in the minority in a prison population.
What is perhaps most notable about who goes to prison is the disproportionality of certain socially and economically marginalized racial groups such as blacks and aboriginal people (who appear to commit more offences for which imprisonment is used), and, more generally, of the most disadvantaged groups in society.
Two factors are central to understanding the over-representation of Indigenous people in Canadian correctional institutions. The first is the over-reliance in Canada on the use of imprisonment; the second is that more of the aboriginal than the non-Indigenous population falls into the socio-economic group most vulnerable to involvement in the criminal justice system.
