Not surprisingly, among Canadian CMAs Toronto dominates the list of foreign born populations in terms of sheer numbers. Here's a list of nationalities which have higher numbers in Montreal and Vancouver (with at least 5,000 represented).

Montreal has the most born in:

Haiti 69,650
France 59,250
Morocco 45,695
Algeria 44,750
Lebanon 36,515
Peru 10,790
Cambodia 9,145
Tunisia 8,305
Congo 7,640
Chile 7,340
Belgium 6,415
Moldova 5,630

Vancouver has the most born in:

Taiwan 42,050
Fiji 16,745
Japan 13,070
Australia 5,815

Also of note...

- Ottawa has more Haitians than Toronto and both have about the same number of Lebanese (Ottawa just a little ahead).

- Toronto basically has the same number of Romanians and Chileans as Montreal and Malaysians as Vancouver.

OK...what kind of conversation do you want around this? I'm not sure what your question is.

I think your number of South Asians and Chinese is off for Vancouver. Yes I know Taiwan is "China" but I'm referring to HK and the PRC.

This is by country of birth, not origin, and while Vancouver has a higher % that is Chinese, Toronto has more people born in China and Hong Kong. However Vancouver has more born in Taiwan.

I don't know where you got your data set, but unless you're comparing metro areas, you're making a correlation between apples and pineapples and calling them the same.

Vancouver is tiny as a sole entity. Toronto, since all of the metro is now officially TO, is huge. The Lower Mainland needs to be included in your data for there to be any kind of realistic comparison.

I don't know how you missed this;

for Vancouver;

UK 64,500
China 168,440
Hong Kong 73,770
South Korea 42,025
India 114,075

That doesn't include ones like the US that are well over 20K.

I think your analysis needs work.

All of which are smaller than the numbers in the Toronto CMA. I only listed the countries where the Vancouver CMA had higher populations than the Toronto CMA.

Put the data set down and back away and no one will get hurt.
