This article uses both provincial and territorial data from the 2014 GSS on Victimization to present information on Aboriginal victimization, with a particular focus on violent victimization. Characteristics associated with these incidents, including possible risk factors as well as consequences of victimization, reasons for reporting or not reporting the victimization to the police, perceptions of personal safety and perceptions of the criminal justice system are also explored. Where possible, gender differences, as well as differences between Aboriginal people living in the provinces and territories are highlighted
