The Face of Canada is Changing

Stats Canada published a report in December 2008 – “Immigrant Economic and Social Outcomes in Canada“, that called out some interesting facts, including:

  • One in five persons living in Canada is foreign born
  • In Toronto, almost half of the population is foreign born

Census statistics from 2001 provides a broader overview of immigrant origin in Canada:

I personally believe this is a great advantage for Canada.  The more ties we have with other countries, the more likely that business relationships will be developed.
