Are there any ethnic groups whose largest concentrations are in Atlantic Canada?

So far I haven't seen any mentioned yet or that come to mind.

I know London has one of Canada's largest Colombian communities.

This is true but for groups like them that aren't solidly French-oriented (as a first or strong second language) the sheer size of Toronto and Anglo-Canada usually tips the balance with the majority of people settling outside Quebec. Though it's also true that the percentage in Quebec for these demographics is still usually quite a bit above our share of the Canadian population.

The Filipino places I've gone to have not been very good, and I'm not sure I've ever seen one that wasn't lower end. Jollibee... doesn't look amazing. When I google it one of the first images includes a 50 cent coupon for a hamburger steak with a side of plain rice.

If you look at Chinese or Indian food in comparison it's easy to find both cheaper and more upscale places. There's also some very tasty and cheap Chinese and Indian food.
There are no fine dining restaurants in Winnipeg serving Filipino cuisine, but there are a couple of places that are a step up over the kinds of restaurants you describe.

There is only one Filipino place here I can think of that aims for an image of being slightly higher end in a way that would appeal to non-Filipinos (i.e. white folk), and that's this place. There are a couple of other similar places operated by younger chefs with a more modern sensibility.

The other somewhat more upscale places tend to be focused on Filipinos and their various banquets and functions. These are the places with huge dining rooms and banquet halls. Then after that you're down to the simple hole-in-the-wall type joints. Jollibee is straight up fast food... the best analogy I've heard is that it's like the Filipino version of Tim Horton's and it pushes similar buttons.

Despite the large number of Filipinos here, there have only in the last decade or so been a small number of Filipino restaurants popping up. I'd liken it to how it used to be with Ukrainians years ago... huge number of ethnic Ukrainians, but no more than a couple restaurants serving Ukrainian food. Dining out just wasn't part of the culture... moms, aunts or grandmothers made Ukrainian dishes to eat at home. Contrast that to the Chinese where eating out is definitely part of the culture.

We have one sit down Filipino restaurant in Windsor, and it is very popular, drawing many from across the border, from Michigan, Ohio and even Chicago! Filipino’s make up 1.4% of our population, so over 3,100 in our CMA, the highest amount in Southwestern Ontario outside of Hamilton!

North Africans includes Moroccans, Algerians, Tunisians, Libyans and Egyptians.

The first three are highly francophone oriented. The last two not so much with the exception of Egyptian Christian Copts.

I sense that if you isolated the three first countries, the concentration in Quebec would be even much higher than 63%.

Maybe Canadians with African American roots would come the closest, though there are probably more in Ontario.

Definitely the case. The vast majority of Blacks in Nova Scotia are descended from the Black Loyalists. In Ontario I'd be surprised if more than 5% of Blacks can trace their roots to the Underground Railroad era.

Is it possible to estimate or predict "African American roots" or ancestry in Canada from Stats Canada? I'm not sure if people with such ancestry would necessarily go out of their way to specifically label it such relative to "Black Canadian", but I'm guessing there are ways to estimate "old" Black Canadian populations that existed before the wave of 20th century Afro-Caribbean immigrants.

What proportion of the population of Windsor is African American relative to newer African immigrant?

Correct. Most of Nova Scotia Blacks are African-American. The vast majority of Ontario Blacks are people who emigrated to Canada since 1960 from the Caribbean and Africa.

Imperfect, but probably the best proxy measure.

Black, 15 years and over, third generation or more:

Canada 6.2%
Nova Scotia 71.5%
Ontario 5.3%

There was also a very modest Caribbean immigration in the early 20th century, including the parents of former Ontario lieutenant governor Lincoln Alexander and jazz legend Oscar Peterson.

I did not know that. One thing that strikes me about Nova Scotia Blacks is the culture. It's identical to that of African-Americans and rather separate from other Canadian Blacks. It makes sense when one realizes that they are actually African-American in origin.

Some of the more isolated Nova Scotia Blacks I've met seem stuck in a bit of a 1820s time warp. I actually had a lady say 'yessum' to me.

I don't know how much of this has survived to this day but as recently as when I was a kid you could find scattered here and there in often tiny rural towns in Nova Scotia these small black churches with passionately sung gospel music and the like.

One of the many fascinating stories of Canada that never gets told because of, well, you know...
