Ok I would like a rough estimate of the Asian population of Vancouver as a Chinese in search of a laugh claimed that it was 50% Chinese, ridiculous. So how much is it, really, and is there a significant Asian presence in Canada?

It's more like 30% but still the largest single group.

Wow 30%! That is more than I imagined. I thought that Vancouver was a State or Region though not a City, minorities do tend to huddle themselves up in Cities and Metropolitan areas it seems. And I was thinking that Canada had no serious non-White problems.

Hate to burst your bubble but in Canada we have lots of minorites Nazzjonalist.
Here in the Southern Okanagan Valley we have lots of East Indians to the point most white women will not go out by themselves at night any more, BC doesnt have to many nigers YET but they keep letting the scum come in.
Jews we got lots, as for the asians in this area we dont have as many as Vancover.
Niggers dont like our colder temps so they hang around Toronto or one of the bigger centers.
Thats why we live near a smaller city less crime and more whites plus most are scared to come out into the "bush" where we live cause most of the whites in this neck of the woods are considered more rednecks that are most likely to shot first and then ask questions.
The asians are slowly finding their way here but very slowly . Right now there maybe 1 or 2 percent asians where as pakies the number jumps to 10 percent or higher.
Whites still are majority for now.

There are many asians in Vancouver and many of them are married to white people. Everyday, I see at least two mixed race couples.

Scotch tape, are you from Vancouver? You know what I've been seeing more and more of lately? Black people! They're all over the place now. I'm not sure where they all came from, but even the blatantly african or carribean 3rd worlders are thugged out and acting like they were born in compton within a month of getting here.

Yes, I've been noticing more Negroes too. They're following me. Where ever I go they follow. They just won't leave me alone. Maybe I should move to Africa.

Is the city Vancouver on the island Vancouver or not? I wonder what percentage of Canada's population is non European?

The city of Vancouver is the biggest city in the Lower Mainland, which is a collection on the southwest coast of British Columbia, which is the westernmost province of Canada. Vancouver Island is a large island just to our west, off the coast. Our province's capitol, Victoria is there.

As far as non-White population goes, I can't find the stats, but I've heard roughly 25-30%. However, they're really ramping up immigration, so it could be more.

I think that the fiest predominantly European country that loses its power/soverreignty will start to fight back. I think the US will be first followed by France, Germany, Canada, Holland, and others.

There is actually more Chinese spoken in Canada now than French.

Here in Nova Scotia, we don't have a high Asian population, but we have a high and rising Arab population. I'm not necessarily a racialist, but the rising Arabic population worries me, I don't want Nova Scotia to become in the same state that a lot of European countries are in, with rising Jihadism causing locals to live in fear.

There is actually more Chinese spoken in Canada now than French. Well, that isn't the case, according to the 2001 census:




The 2001 Census total of anglophones, those who report their mother tongue as English, was 17.5 million, or 59.1 percent of the population of Canada, down from 59.8 percent at the last census in 1996. The 2001 Census total of francophones, those who report their mother tongue as French, was 6.8 million, or 22.9 percent of the population, down from 23.5 percent in 1996.

Chinese is the third most common mother tongue in Canada, with the number of people reporting Chinese as their mother tongue at a total of 872,400. That's approximately 2.9 percent of the total population of Canada, up about 0.3 percent since 1996.

Most of the Chinese live in Toronto or Vancouver, and it is noteworthy that there are large areas of those cities where you can drive for miles and see nothing but Chinese signs (and people). Undoubtedly there is more Chinese than French spoken in those two cities by a large margin.

It's worth noting too that Chinese is listed before French on political and regional correspondence in this area. A prime example is mail from the City of Vancouver. Take a look at the back of the envelope where it says "Important information. Please have this translated." or something to that effect, along with half a dozen translations of the phrase in foreign languages.


Another good example is pamphlets from MLAs. They always contain a huge portion of Chinese text. (I'm unsure if this is just catering to the immigrant vote or if, in concentrated areas, they account for a much higher percentage of the population than the aforementioned 30 %.)


Regardless, Chinese isn't one of our national languages.

i left vancouver in 2000, by then the amount of chinese, vietnamese, koreans, japanese was around 40%. add to it the iranians and the east indians and white folks were a minority. i moved to canada in 1990, not expecting to move to a country thats given away to asians.

Its the same story here in Quebec. The Arabs population is one of the fastest growing minority groups. Hardly a day goes by that I don't see examples of islamic peasant stock dressed in some archaic tribal costume. Their numbers are truly starting to creep me out because they are not integrating with us infidels -- instead they are quietly and industriously building a parallel society, which I know to based on Sharia law (even if nobody openly speaks about it).

I personally know of two arab women who started off in Canada as liberated women who chose not to wear the hijab head scarf but later caved in to intimidation tactics and community pressure.

Multiculturalism is slowly but surely turning Canada into another Yugoslavia.

I travel to Vancouver frequently and have numerous friends and relatives there.

The census data previously posted in this thread is outdated. Vancouver has significantly more than 50% Chinese; the metro area inclusively may average to roughly half being of some sort of asian descent. However, certain areas are up to 75%+ non-european.

As well as the historic Chinese, Japanese, and East Indian communities, large groups of Philipinos, Mexicans, Central Americans, Vietnamese, Koreans, Iranians, Sri Lankans, ethnic Indians of African origin, Jamaicans, Albanians and Afghanis have formed enclaves within the city.

What's astonishing is the speed with which the complexion of the city changed. :-O

I grew up in Vancouver so I know this well.

The city is a beautiful place but the ethnics who do not wish to integrate are what really ruin it.

Come out to Calgary ;)

There were natives living in the area of what is now Vancouver. As to Asians and others taking over that is not fair to natives, whites, or other Asians living here now because we all have to live with the consequences of huge population growth. The immigration rates are out of control in Canada, and I consider most cities unlivable now because of the overcrowding. The property rates have gone through the roof as 280,000 new people a year settle in the cities. So the elites just love the money-making real estate bubble being sustained by this irresponsible immigration. If it ruins the country at least they made their money. That's how it is here.

Quote from Beijing Review:
"Yuen Pau Woo, President and Co-CEO of the Asia-Pacific Foundation of Canada, a not-for-profit think tank based in Vancouver, British Columbia, shared his thoughts with Beijing Review during a recent trip to Beijing.
Woo: "Tere are 1 million Canadians with Chinese ethnic origin. Many of them have very close ties with China and other Asian countries.(...) I think Canada is China's gateway to North America. It is apparently because we have such strong human linkages between Canada and China, not least of which is the very large Chinese population in Vancouver and Toronto. Some of the best Chinese restaurants in the world are in fact in Vancouver and Toronto. Some of the most interesting Chinese calligraphy exhibitions and cultural activities take place in Toronto and Vancouver.""

Source: Beijing Review, Vol.48, No.49, Dec. 8, 2005, p.13

P.S.: You can buy Beijing Review in Canada or order it from China P.R., the price for Canada per issiu is CDN$ 2.60.

They are not integrating on the East Coast either, and they're EVERYWHERE. I refer to the Halifax Shopping Center as the Baghdad Shopping Center because if I go in there I'm usually the only woman with my hair exposed in the whole mall. And who are the only people in the mall pushing baby carriages? Well, Muslims, of course.

Arabic is now the second most common language in Nova Scotia, even more than Acadian French. There are actually more Muslims in Halifax than there are Acadians in all three Maritime provinces.

Former Premier John Hamm announced a plan in 2002 to boost immigration to Nova Scotia... two years later, in 2004, Halifax was named Canada's Most Violent City. Coincidence?
