I'm just curious with this, where are cities or towns where you can find Hispanic people from small to mid (If it really fits) percentage in Canada?.

Montreal has alot of Hispanic people because Spanish is so close to French. Toronto has many because there's alot of every nationality in the world in Toronto. I'd say that percentage is, however, significantly lower than what you'd find in an American city. I've run into a surprising number of Hispanics in Vancouver, but there aren't really all that many.

This hispanic community in other cities and towns exists, but is small and probably doesn't have much in the way of organizations and businesses to cater to it. I met several hispanics during a brief visit to Trois-Rivieres, so I know there's some there. We don't have census data on Hispanics like the US does so there's not way to say for sure.

There is no equivalent to a US model for Latinos in Canada. Generally the Spanish speaking population represents a percentage closer to the average Asian population for cities in the States. Small single digits.

Statistics Canada does have a category for Latin Americans though. I think the highest percentages in Toronto are around Eglinton West, Little Portugal, The Junction, Corso Italia and Jane Finch, but it's still under 20% Latin American.

You will find them in the Okanagan Valley working the vineyards and fruit groves. They work hard and do the work that other Caucasion Canadians refuse to do, even if they are starving. They are well-respected and liked in those communities.
Now, if you asked about Indos or Orientals you can find them just about anywhere. In Vancouver, BC the average woman's size is ) - yes, zero - and that is due to the huge Oriental influx of immigrants. In fact, there are some (not me), who refer to Vancouver as Hongcouver.

London, Ontario also has a shockingly high number of Colombians. Something like 5,000, but they aren't really organized into a physical community. I don't mean shockingly as a bad thing, just unexpected is all.

How come there are so few Hispanics in Canada compared to other immigrant groups?

I have also noticed that Hispanic people seem to be much more visible (and audible) in Quebec than in the rest of the country.
