Statistics Canada on Wednesday (October 25) released some of the 2016 census data. The census found that in 2016, the proportion of immigrants among the Canadian population had reached the highest level since 1921. Statistics Canada announced the new figures, just as the federal government is about to submit its annual immigration indicators in the House of Representatives. The Liberal government set an immigration indicator for 2017 of 300,000. Census data shows that immigrants account for more than one-fifth of the population. In 2016, 21.9% of Canadians were immigrants or permanent residents, up from 19.8% in 2006. However, this proportion is not the highest ever. In 1921, the proportion of Canadian immigrants was as high as 22.3%. Statistics Canada estimates that by 2036, immigrants may account for as much as 30% of Canada's total population. The report said that between 2011 and 2016, Canada received a total of 1.2 million new immigrants, of which 60.3% were classified as “economic” immigrants – nearly half of them came to Canada through the skilled immigration program. The statistics of immigrants going west also show that immigrants are 'introducing' into the plains provinces of Canada in large numbers. In Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, the proportion of new immigrants has increased significantly. However, 39% of new immigrants still chose to settle in Ontario, but in 2001 as many as 55.9% of new immigrants chose Ontario. René Houle, a senior analyst at Statistics Canada, said: 'This is not just because of economic conditions, but because some provinces are using provincial and territorial nomination programs to attract immigrants who meet local economic needs.' Big cities are still the most attractive places for immigrants. Statistics report that 56% of immigrants live in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and surrounding areas, while only one-third of the Canadian native population lives in these three major cities. More than 60% of immigrants from Asia and the Middle East have increased significantly. Statistics Canada says that more than 60% of new immigrants come from Asia and the Middle East, which is by far the largest source of immigrants. However, Africa has now surpassed Europe as the second most important source of new immigrants. 13.4% of new immigrants are Africans. According to the report, this is mainly due to Quebec's efforts in attracting French-speaking populations in recent years. Nearly half of new immigrants from Africa have settled in Quebec. According to statistics, the top three countries of origin for new immigrants are: Philippines (15.6%) India (12.1%) China (10.6%) Americans account for nearly 3% of new immigrants, and two former ancestors from Canada – France and British people account for 4% of all new immigrants. In addition, due to the influx of refugees, Syrians jumped to the 7th place in the source of immigrants. In 2011, Syria was ranked 50th in the source country of Canadian immigrants. 22.3% is “visible” The minority census also shows that there are currently 7.7 million Canadians of color, accounting for 22.3% of the population. In 1981, there were only 4.7% of colored people in Canada. The Bureau of Statistics predicts that by 2036, colored people may account for 33% of the total population. Among the “visible” minorities, 25.1% are South Asians, 20.5% are Chinese, and 15.6% are blacks. In addition, 6% of Canadians said they have a certain aboriginal ancestry. The proportion of non-indigenous births in Canada and other countries in the total population: 1. Australia (2016): 28% 2. Canada (2016): 21.9% 3. Germany: 15% 4. United States (2016) : 14% 5. United Kingdom: 13% 6. France: 12% 7. Italy: 10% 8. Russia: 8% 9. Japan: 2% 10. Except for Australia, Canada and the United States, the proportions are calculated in 2016. The proportion of other countries ranges from 2001 to 2015. Source: Integrated Network
