Statistics Canada: Canada has 6.8 million foreign-born residents

The National Household Survey, something Statistics Canada has designed in an effort to gather more information on Canada and Canadians now that the long-form census is gone, has uncovered all kinds of interesting data regarding the makeup of Canadian society. Foreign-Born Residents in Canada

According to the survey, Canada is currently home to 6.8 million residents who were born in another country, which is 20.6 per cent of the total population. In 2006, that number was 19.8 per cent. This is also the highest number of people who are foreign born living in a G8 country.

One in five people living in Canada is a visible minority, but there are actually nine different municipalities in Canada where the visible minorities are the majority.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
