More About Canada

Canada is known as a country with a broad immigration policy which is reflected in Canada’s ethnic diversity. According to the 2001 census by Statistics canada, Canada has 34 ethnic groups with at least one hundred thousand members each, of which 10 have over 1,000,000 people and numerous others represented in smaller amounts. 16.2% of the population belonged to visible minorities: most numerous among these are South Asian (4.0% of the population),Chinese (3.9%),Black Descent(2.5%), and Filipino(1.3%).

Other than Canadians of British, Irish, or French descent there are more members of Ethnic groups not classified as visible minorities than this 16.2%; the largest are: German (10.18%), and Italian(4.63%), with 3.87% being Ukrainian, 3.87% being Dutch, and 3.15% being Polish. Other minority ethnic origins include Russian (1.60%), Norwegian (1.38%), Portuguese (1.32%), and Swedish(1.07%). (“North American Indians”, a group which may include migrants of indigenous origin from the United States and Mexico but which for the most part are not considered immigrants, comprise 4.01% of the national population.)

One of the major issues immigrant groups faces upon arrival to Canada are Ethnic penalties. Be aware that, on IAM (Immigration And Migration) we do process UK to Canada as from Canada to UK.
