The Chinese American population might be growing faster but it's still spread out more between cities than its Canadian counterpart, so even though Canada's immigration destinations are diversifying, Toronto and Vancouver are still likely to receive a larger relative share.

Additionally, it seems to be the case that the children of immigrants in Canadian cities are more likely to live in their parents' city (or close by), while the children of immigrants to the US probably leave their parents' immigration gateway and disperse more.

That's why I'm thinking the largest Canadian city, Toronto's CMA will be able to catch up to NYC's metro.
