It seems like even northern states like Oregon, Washington, and Minnesota have a larger Mexican than Canadian community. I'm thinking possibly Vermont or Alaska might have more Canadians than Mexicans, but then again I doubt it?

New York may be another state that fits. New Hampshire and Maine also comes to mind.

Are you including people of French Canadian descent? Is this in regards to recent arrivals?

Do you mean Canadian citizens living in the USA, or people born in the USA who have ancestors who cam from or through Canada??

Considering that Canadians don't have as much of a pull to immigrate here than Mexicans do, it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise that few states (if any) have more Canadians than Mexicans.

My guess is that it's true of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine (and no other state) but I haven't found numbers yet. New York State has gotten too many Mexican immigrant in the last two decades for Canadians to outnumber Mexicans. The first language of the current governor of Maine was French, he learned English later in childhood.

I know that a few years ago this was the case with North Dakota, I don't know if it is anymore.

On a map I recall seeing (can't find the link though) where it listed the most common non-U.S. birthplace for the residents of each state I recall it showing Canada for Montana, North Dakota, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine (and Mexico for the majority of the states). Those are all relatively low-populated states (a combined total of seven House members) that border Canada (and all but Montana are also among the few where a language other than Spanish is the second-most spoken).
