Canada, by quite a margin.

Mass immigration from South Asia to Australia is quite new. So there are not that many multi generational South Asian/Australian's.

About 750,000 south asian immigrants lived in Australia, in 2016. Indian's were the 4th biggest immigrant group after the UK, china and NZ, and also the fastest growing group. Its quite possible we have more indians than kiwis these days.

They form the biggest immigrant group in Melbourne.

To put some numbers to Canada's South Asian population and largest Metro's by S.A:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Asian_Canadians

1.963 million claimed S.A geographical origins in 2016 making it the largest visible minority group in the country.

Largest Metro's by S.A population:

Toronto 973K
Vancouver 253K
Calgary 81K
Montreal 53K

Metro Toronto alone has more South Asians than all of Australia.

The OP was posing the question regarding Canada and Australia. The UK has a significantly higher population than these two countries. That said, you say the UK has more than CAD/AUS combined. Source on that?

South Asia extends to more countries than India but India is by far the most populous South Asian population and it looks like the UK only has slightly more than Canada. Adding in Australia's than the UK most certainly does not have more than AUS/CAD combined in terms of just Indians.

If you include peoples of South Asian origin, the Australian number comes up to about 1.1 Million, (the 750,000 are the actual first generation immigrants) still well short of Canada though.

By my Quick Calculations

Melbourne 360K
Sydney 330K
Perth 97K
Brisbane 82K
Adelaide 47K

Its interesting how concentrated they are to Toronto.

Thanks for the clarification.

As for the Toronto metro, It is like that for a lot of groups. As a percentage of population, Vancouver has more East Asians than Toronto but in absolute numbers Toronto has more. Same thing with Caribbean blacks, Italians, Portuguese, Korean, Filipino's etc etc being more numerous in Toronto. Vancouver has more Japanese I believe and Montreal has more Haitians and groups from Francophonie countries. I would imagine things are more even keeled in Australia between Melbourne and Sydney, given they are much closer to one another in terms of population. Toronto's Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) is 50 percent more populated than the second largest in Canada, Montreal. Vancouver is almost 1/3rd the metro population of Toronto for example. If you also account for satellite cities that surround the Greater Toronto area, about 1/4th of Canada's population is found in a region anchored by Toronto called the Golden Horseshoe. It owes its population to immigrants!

The gap narrows considerably on a percentage of total population basis, given Canada’s 50% greater headcount.

Well Melbourne and Sydney both have more South Asians than Vancouver, Calgary or Montreal. It is just that so many S.A's are located in the Metro Toronto area. A metro with a population of almost 1 million S.A's must be one of the highest expat populations of said group in the world in one urban area.
