In 2011, a total of 18,980 immigrants from Australia resided in Canada.
In 2011, about 85% of Australian immigrants lived in three provinces: British Columbia (7,265 or 38.3%), Ontario (6,760 or 35.6%), and Alberta (2,745 or 14.5%).
In 2011, 4,025 Australians resided in Vancouver and 3,495 in Toronto.
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.
