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

In 2011, 60,555 immigrants from Colombia resided in Canada.


Nine out of ten Colombians lived in three provinces: Ontario (26,720 or 44%), Quebec (21,325 or 35%) and Alberta (6,865 or 11%).

Colombians also resided in other Western Provinces: British Columbia (3,315), Manitoba (1,090) and Saskatchewan (450).

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.
