St. John's is 0.1% immigrant 8,135 immigrants in the city.

In my postal code, it is 8.5% immigrant. 15.5% are First Generation, and another 5.1% are Second Generation.

They are from:

1. United States/China
2. France (presumably SPM)/Iraq
3. Bangladesh/Egypt/Phillipines/Russia/South Africa

Wow! That seems really low! It can't be 0.1%, lol.

Windsor is 27.8% immigrant, and our metro is 22.9%

I misread I think. St. John's is 4% immigrant and gets 0.1% of newcomers to Canada.

Over 80% visible minorities where I live.

There's one large tract in Scarborough that appears as 100% Chinese. However according to someone on Reddit, the only residential development in the whole tract is a Chinese nursing home.

Yeah, there's only a few hundred people in that tract.

That's part of the problem with census tracts. Some are way too small, leading to weird stats like this that can be dangerous. How many alt-righters are now going to be circulating around the internet that OMG ONE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN SCARBOROUGH IS LITERALLY ALL CHINESE.

Is that the highest median age of any census tract in the country?

Black Canadians have crossed the 1 million mark and now represent 3.5% of the population.

The percentage of non-white Canadians and non-white Americans is pretty similar now in their respective countries.

Canada having 22.3% visible minority and 4.9% indigenous, in 2016 is pretty much similar to the US census in 2010 (if you only look at racial minorities but don't divide up Hispanic and non-Hispanic whites, which Canada doesn't).

The US also counts people with roots in the Middle East and North Africa as "white." Also many filling out "Latin American" in the Canadian census would likely be classified as white and Hispanic in the US (since race and Hispanic origin are separate questions).

Of the big three VM minority groups, the South Asian and Black populations increased by around 50% between 2006 and 2016 and the Chinese population by 30%. The first two have younger populations (21.5% of South Asians and 26.6% of Blacks are under 15 compared to 15.3% for Chinese Canadians), and hence natural increase played more of a role.

It seems like Chinese immigration from China itself might have peaked in the 2000s or early 2010s, since India and the Philippines overtook it during the past few years. The previous wave of Chinese immigration from Hong Kong also peaked around the 90s I believe, and also had a lot of return migration.

In absolute number, Toronto's CMA, at near 700, 000 Chinese Canadians is now approaching the Chinese population of NYC's metro area, and beats out any west coast city. It's possible that by the end of the decade, Toronto will have the most people of Chinese descent of any city in the western hemisphere.

Also, Metro Vancouver likely surpasses the Bay Area in the absolute number of Chinese, though the relative percentage was already larger for some time.

Don;t forget the introduction of the ten year visa took away a lot of the incentive to immigrate. It allows them to enjoy much of the benefits while not having to submit to the full reach of Canadian taxation.

The global appetite for Canada’s new 10-year visas appears insatiable, especially in China.

More than three million people from countries with which Canada has long had travel restrictions have obtained the 10-year, multiple-entry visas since the program began in 2014.

With almost half the 10-year visas being handed out in Mainland China, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government this year opened seven new visa offices, the province of B.C., more than anywhere in Canada, has experienced a surge of visitors....

...But they have also been vulnerable to abuse by rich trans-nationals with families in Canada who seek to avoid paying Canadian income taxes on their global income.

More than 1.4 million Mainland Chinese have gone through the vetting process to obtain Canada’s 10-year visa, which allows visits of up to six months at a time.

More than 716,000 people from India have also obtained multiple-entry visas, followed by 273,000 from Brazil and 140,000 from the Philippines...
...Hyman said the popularity of the 10-year visas has come at the same time tens of thousands of foreign nationals, many of whom were the principal applicants for their family’s permanent resident status, are relinquishing the status for themselves.

This would normally mean they give up the chance to become Canadian citizens.

But Hyman and other immigration specialists say several Canadian tax loopholes allow trans-nationals “to transfer unlimited wealth” to spouses, children and other family members in Canada.

And in many cases, said Hyman, those family members use the breadwinner’s money to invest in real estate, particularly in Metro Vancouver.

Why do you say that? If anything the Chinese American population is growing at a faster rate than the Chinese Canadian population (27% between 2010 census and 2016 ACS in US, 19% between 2011 NHS and 2016 census in Canada).
