Immigration Future Canadian

In the 2001 census, 13% of Canadians recognized themselves as be a member of a evident minority. But by 2017, if Statistics Canada ridge hold true, that figure could go up to among 19 and 23 per cent.

By Canada's 150th birthday, approximately 95 per cent of noticeable immigrants would live in urban areas, with 3/4 living in Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal. And approximately half of the populace living in Toronto and Vancouver would belong to a visible minority by 2017.

In keeping with the projections, the visible immigration population of Toronto will range between 2.8 million and nearly 3.9 million within 12 years.

Nonstop Immigration to Canada
The major reason for this is a hope of continued immigration to Canada over the next 12 years. Statistics Canada builds five different scenarios for future immigration rates and inhabitants growth. These scenarios forecast that Canada's immigrant population could reach between 7 million and 9.3 million in 2017.

Chinese and South Asians including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Middle East and Sri Lanka were the main obviously minority groups in Canada, and the projection doesn't see that changing. Roughly half of all visible minorities would belong to those groups by 2017.

Distribution of Immigrants in Canada
In Toronto, approximately one third of visible minorities would be South Asians. Almost one half of the visible minority inhabitants in Vancouver would be Chinese. And in Montreal, blacks and Arabs would stay the main visible minority groups, representing 27 per cent and 19 per cent of the minority population, correspondingly.
