Yes, there is quite a decent-sized population in Abbotsford (mostly Guatemalan, maybe from their civil war, I don't know). There are quite a few Catholic and Pentecostal churches in the GVRD/fraser valley offering Spanish language services.

I visited Montreal for the first time around 1996. I drove in with a friend and we need directions. I popped my head out the car at a light and asked for help and the guy did not understand my English. Mind you this is the first person i spoke to in Canada. I ended up talking to him in Spanish and getting my directions. My friend and I found this incredibly amusing. I then went to an underground supermarket, again the cashier Spanish speaking. So at least 18 years ago Montreal was teaming with Spanish speaking immigrants. I would imagine there are many more now.
