In 2011, the immigrant population comprised 20.6% of Canada’s population, so one in five people were immigrants.




In 2011, 22,900 immigrants from Brazil resided in Canada.

Nine out of ten Brazilians lived in three provinces: Ontario (11,810 or 52%), Quebec (5,845 or 26%) and British Columbia (2,875 or 13%).

Note:

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.
