Name of Organization or Government Agency. (Date of publication). Title of document in sentence case and italics: Capitalize first word of subtitle. Retrieved from http://website.com/full

NOTE: If citing the report/document from a website, use the web address (URL) in the retrieval statement, e.g.: Retrieved from http://health.afn.ca/en/highlights/general/wellness-foundation-model

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) Name of organization/group, year of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence. If there are no page numbers, refer to the paragraph number or heading within the text:

(Assembly of First Nations, 2015, p. 3).

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:

The Assembly of First Nations (2015) stated that "a significant gap in health outcomes exists between First Nations and the general Canadian population" (p. 3).
