Argentina Immigration to Canada


The most recent data (2011) shows that immigrants comprised 20.6% of Canada’s population; in other words, one in five people were immigrants.

In 2011, 18,870 immigrants from Argentina resided in Canada.

Most Argentineans lived in Ontario (55%), Quebec (26% ) and British Columbia (8%).

Argentineans mainly resided in three major cities: Toronto (8,295), Montreal (4,095) and Vancouver (1,210).


We would like to point out that we used data from the National Household Survey (NHS) knowing that its quality is still under criticism because this survey was conducted on a voluntary basis, so its validity, reliability and comparability with other instruments, such as population censuses have become an issue. In fact, before the first release of the NHS results, Statistics Canada issued warnings and cautions when using the NHS data, so use this data prudently.
