Summary

The present study explores the theory and, to the greatest degree possible given the limitations of the data, the reality of aboriginal participation in what may be defined as 'organized crime' in Canada, engaging the possibility of a definition of 'aboriginal organized crime' and the proposal of a 'typology' of participants. The paper explores current patterns of offending among the aboriginal population, arguing that organized activities constitute only a very small percentage and, in many respects, unique permutation in those patterns.
