Notes:
The facts and figures represented are of the immigrant population only, based on information from the 1986, 1991, and 1996 Census of Canada (Statistics Canada).
Data for all geographic areas has been adjusted to conform to 1996 boundaries. Municipalities that did not exist in 1986 or 1991 are not included.
All data is random rounded to ensure privacy and maintain confidentiality.
Only communities with an immigrant population in 1996 of 100 or more persons were included.
